As we seem to have a growing number of railway enthusiasts among us I thought it might be worth trying a new forum for for the subject as there's so much to talk about. This thread is to discuss past, future and present railway programmes. I've recently been watching Extreme Railways featuring Chris Tarrant. I bought a series featuring Chris trek across Congo's Jungle, Australia's Outback and India's Monsoon Railway. The Indian Monsoon Railway is probably my favourite with the onboard restaurant car with it's deep fat fryer cooking away as the carriage sways from side to side. Looking on Channel 5 Extreme Railways website it looks like Chris Tarrant has been filming a new series just aired during November. Did anybody manage to watch them? The latest series featured The Middle East; The Balkans; Baltic; Timbuktu; Trans-Caucasus Railway; Night Train To Patagonia and more. At first I bought the series for the little lad to watch but I've really enjoyed watching them with him over and over again.
