Next Episode of Mighty Trains is
From the locomotive to rail traffic control to the maintenance depot, Mighty Trains takes audiences on a journey riding the rails around the world. We will follow the engineers and conductors as they navigate their way through busy rail yards, vie for priority departures and deal with the unexpected, oftentimes on railways designed almost 200 years ago. Train Managers, load-masters, head chefs, track inspectors, rail traffic control officers and passengers move us through the train, as well as outside of it, in order to experience an in-depth journey into the heart of our train - featuring our intrepid traveler, Teddy Wilson.
Embark on one of the most expensive and highly sought-after train rides in the world: Seven Stars. A ticket for this luxury sleeper train is so exclusive, passengers have to enter a lottery just to get onto the waitlist, and we will show why as we glide through Kyushu, an island brimming with beaches, hot springs, and active volcanoes. But it's not lava eruptions the train's driver and crew need to worry about this trip; it's an approaching Category 5 super typhoon that has everyone on high alert...and threatening to cut the trip short.
The Belgrade to Bar train takes passengers on a 12-hour Balkan adventure across the majestic Dinaric Alps and through land that was torn by a brutal civil war just decades ago. But through difficult times and terrain, this mighty train has journeyed forth, on its course from Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, to Bar, in Montenegro on the Adriatic Sea. Join host Teddy Wilson on this rugged ride as we cross 435 bridges, snake through 254 tunnels, and skim atop an ancient tectonic lake on this one-of-a-kind, 296-mile train voyage.
There's no better way to explore Vietnam than by rail, aboard the Reunification Express. This three-day adventure from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City is a stunning ride, rich in spectacular views of rivers, rice paddies, and dragonfruit orchards and steeped in the nation's war-torn past. Join us as we go behind the scenes to meet the crew, some of whom are literally risking their lives to deliver a great experience and keep passengers safe through rough weather, landslides, illegal crossings, and even hidden death traps.
Two years after being closed to passenger traffic because of a massive earthquake, the Coastal Pacific railway is open again, offering spectacular views of the rugged, eastern coast of New Zealand. This 216-mile journey whisks passengers from Christchurch through the Canterbury Plains, over the beaches of Kaikoura, and past the pink salt plains of Lake Grassmere, en route to Picton. This behind-the-scenes journey follows the team that operates the train and the people who are still repairing the route so it remains safe for years to come.
