For the impatient among you, the entire series is available to watch now on the UKTV Play platform. Online, through Apple/Android apps, and via some Smart TV and broadcast provider platforms.

Opening voiceover: "The train. Among the most revolutionary of human inventions."

Can't argue with that. If steel wheel on steel rail wasn't such an interesting and engaging subject I wouldn't have found reason to compose 16000+ posts on this forum!
