The History Channel offers an overview of the steam train in this informative release, demonstrating how they played a vital role in the evolution of train travel. Although they now exist as museum pieces, the steam train enjoyed an illustrious run as a vital cog in America's transportation network. The big, bulky machines also looked great, made a lot of noise, and paved the way for the faster machines that followed. WHEN GIANTS ROAMED: THE GOLDEN AGE OF STEAM looks at some of the biggest, fastest models that were ever constructed, while also talking to the men who drove some of the most impressive steam engines, and offering vintage footage of the steam trains that carried hundreds of passengers across America.
