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.

The first series looks like it was such a success that there's been not one but two new series commissioned on the Yesterday channel.

Here's Tim Dunn's announcement on Facebook.

By coincidence I have just finished watching all ten episodes of Series One.  Although it does dance about a bit between venues within each episode rather than concentrating on one and then moving on - you cannot fault Tim Dunn's enthusiasm!

From trailer it looks as if the GW Windsor Branch will be included.

The new series starts at 8pm on the 19th January on Yesterday.

I'm guessing it will be available on replay?

I'm afraid Lisa and I have started the new year watching "Married at First Sight, Australia" every evening again ... discussion on that should probably be in the "And Also" area - topics which are not transport related, and are for Frequent Posters.   

Around 85% of members who have visited in the last 24 hours have achieved Frequent Posters status. For the other 15%, please post a few times to open "Rumour Mill",  "Frequent Posters", and "And Also".  We're friendly and receptive here for new posters, and we welcome what you may consider "silly questions" - what you haven't asked because you thought it was silly was something many others will be wondering too, and you'll be doing those others a service.

I expect so. Yesterday is part of UKTV and programmes can be found on UKTV Play - https://uktvplay.uktv.co.uk/

Series 1 is still available.

Funny you should ask.  My Sky box died on Thursday and had to be replaced so losing all my recorded programmes.  Thankfully many still available on catch-up - including Mr Dunn.

As an aside excellent service from Sky - new box arrived within 18 hours of reporting it and at no charge.
