Summary
As America began moving westward the stagecoach could carry people only so far. As settlers pushed farther into the frontier the railroad came of age turning the dream of continental conquest into a reality. During this fast-paced journey WILD WEST TECH takes a cowcatcher to caboose look at the machines that steamed across America during the 1800s. Hear intriguing tales of the dreamers and schemers who made fortunes as a result of the new system as well as the stories of those who did all the backbreaking work to build it. Learn about the revolutionary tools and techniques used to build the tracks bridges and tunnels through mountains of solid granite and explore the technology that was developed to make trains less vulnerable to bandits and train wrecks. From a ride on a surviving nineteenth-century locomotive to a revealing look at artifacts from the days of John Henry Jesse James and the 'Golden Spike.' TRAIN TECH provides the ultimate insight into the technological marvel that made Manifest Destiny possible
