Combat Trains

For over a century, locomotives played a vital role in wartime, transporting soldiers and supplies to the front lines, serving as mobile hospitals, and even acting as a massive weapon on wheels. We explore some of the trains and railways, from the American Civil War through World War II, that turned the tides of battles and changed history. Rarely seen archival footage and accounts from vets who were there highlight these thrilling stories of engineering genius and extraordinary bravery.
