Janson Media today announced the worldwide release of the DVD Tracks Ahead: The Trains of Cuba/ Borne HO Gauge Layout, Minnesota/ Conway Scenic Railway, New Hampshire/ Rochelle Railroad Park, Illinois (1 x 30′). A production of Milwaukee Public Television, Lionel Trains… is a DVD adapted from the magazine style series for train lovers of all ages and experiences, Tracks Ahead.
Steam railroading is still an everyday occurrence in the sugar fields of Cuba. Ride with the Tracks Ahead team on their latest DVD as they explore the beauty of western and central Cuba. Then it’s off to New Hampshire, to ride a portion of the remaining Maine Central Railroad, now the Conway Scenic Railway. Then meet a man whose passion is for model industries, and go to a town that has massive amounts of rail traffic – and helps the rail fans see it all.
This magazine-style series has a unique appeal for train lovers of all ages, for railroading novices as well as experts, as it explores every aspect of the railroads of the world. Now broadcast on more than 200 PBS stations across America, host Spencer Christian (formerly of ABC’s Good Morning America) presents the best of steam locomotives, railroad stories, model trains and art. “We’re striving for more depth in each episode,” said David Baule, executive producer and director of the series. “The stories will intrigue a variety of viewers, while walking a middle line between technical and general information. Our goal is to capture the excitement and history of railroading. We continue to explore everything involved with it, from model trains and museums to collectors and authors.”
