Hosted by railway expert and architecture enthusiast, Tim Dunn, this is due to air on Yesterday TV on April 28th and run weekly for 10 weeks.
It will celebrate the design and construction of station buildings across the UK and Europe, as well as viaducts, signal boxes, tunnels, railway hotels and more.
Rail magazine 904 will have an article by Dunn on the challenges of making the series.
