Did anyone see that series? It was on last year I think. It seems they only did one season of it :( I miss it.

They have the show on DVD now, as well as on iTunes. I have all 8 episodes on iTunes.

The host, Matt Baum, was at the NMRA convention in Spew Haven, CT a few weeks ago. I got a signed picture from him.

I wish there was a season 2.

I picked up the DVD set yesterday at Best Buy, it was in the "Special Interest" section.

Cost $14.99 + tax.

There are quite a few additional segments on the DVD that were not in the broadcast show that are quite interesting to watch.

I would definitely recommend getting the DVD set. (and on iTunes for on-the-go).

If you have a video capable iPod, I would recommend getting all the episodes of Extreme Trains as well as the DVD set. It would show History Channel that there is an audience for train related shows.

That and the fact that when you are underway, it is nice to be able to watch something related to trains to get one's mind off of work.

I can't imagine that there is no audience for the show. It's not like it's just the few of us here that are interested. There are PLENTY of rail fans in this country.

Any idea if the show will be back? I've read on other forums people who Haggis about it being for kids or whatever. What the hell, are we all so old that we can't enjoy the single train based show on TV?

If there were no audience for shows like this, then there would be no places like the Altoona Railroader's Memorial Museum, or the Horseshoe Curve National Historic Site.

The audience is out there.....

Here is a scanned copy of the autograph I got at the last NMRA convention.
