I was watching a program on the Alaskan gold rush & there's a working, narrow-gauge steam locomotive that runs 110 miles between Skagway, Alaska & Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory of Canada. Just made me think of MP.

No, it was pretty bland -- just followed the tourists to the usual touristy places.

MP has managed to find steam locomotives (both operable & non) in all his journeys, I think (maybe not in HA), so I wasn't particularly thinking of FC -- just his love of trains.

Any other trainspotters out there?

I have a passion for model trains. Dad and I made an Austrian/German winter-themed alpine train Christmas garden before he died. It was a work in progress for more than 20 years. Everything handmade, "from scratch" except the trains, land vehicles and the little people themselves. (And the tracks, too, of course! lol) It is cherished to this day.

I thoroughly recommend MP's first 'Great Railway Journey of the World' where he took the train from London to Kyle of Lochalsh in Scotland.
It's quite a rare video but occasionally it can be found on ebay.
It must be about 23 years old now & Michael looks very young in it!

I watched that many years ago with my parents, TwoSheds. It was marvelous. We were always anxious for travel/adventure shows anyway, but the train aspect made it doubly enjoyable.

>>>& Michael looks very young in it!<<<

You'd want to hope so. =D

Does anyone here reckon Gordon Ramsay looks like MP? Maybe it's just me. =D lol

It might also be found in your local public library. If not, access is available through the Interlibrary Loans service.
