This rare archive steam footage was lovingly captured on 16mm film by the famous American railroad enthusiast, Harry P. Dodge. Along with the rest of the series, it provides the unique and incredible story of the world’s railways in the ‘60s and early ‘70s.

In the 1960s, Harry Dodge travelled behind the Iron Curtain, to capture the rails of a bygone age - before the collapse of communism and the demise of steam.

With smoke belching forth across every country, this program explores the unique record he left behind, with rare footage from Yugoslavia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Czechoslovakia and Eastern Germany. Steam freight and passenger trains are included as well as tank engines and turn tables and everything from mighty 2-10-0s to tiny narrow gauge locos; whilst not forgetting all the activity behind the scenes.
