Visit eight states and see America's original line that helped build the west. Filmed by 14 different people over decades. Learn about E. H. Harriman's dramatic life and how he eventually put an empire together that resembles today's merged UP line. Follow the Harriman 1900 era to modern times from the phase out of steam to first and second generation diesels. The focal period is from 1960 to 1980 with the onslaught of rail mergers. See steam GP9s, E and F-units, Turbines, DD35, DD40s, U50s, SD24 and SD45s and many others with passenger and freights.
