David hosts the show from the famed Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, which boasts one of the largest indoor collections of railroad equipment in the United States. Our travels begin From the North Creek Depot of the Upper Hudson River Railroad in New York. Here, Vice President Theodore Roosevelt learned he was to become President after the death of President William McKinley. This line was built as transportation to what was hoped to become the Central Park of the World in the Adirondack Mountains, establishing the first railroad built solely to create a tourist industry. The glories of the East continue to be featured from aboard the Green Mountain Flyer through the Vermont countryside. It travels along the banks of the Connecticut River. This line is still a major freight hauler and passengers regularly see freight trains pass by the historic Bellows Falls station as they await the daily Amtrak train.
