Summary
In 1869, one of the greatest building achievements in history--the Transcontinental Railroad--was completed. But for the stalwart settlers willing to risk it all, the American West was far from conquered as travel on the thin steel ribbon of the railroad was a dangerous affair. In this program, rare photographs, re-creations and expert interviews present the story of the western railroads including political struggles, labor concerns, and critical inventions
