Combat Trains: EPISODE 6

Critical Cargo

One train ride launched the career of a global leader. Another brought home a revolutionary hero. One was used to smuggle treasures stolen by Nazis while another was used to sneak out an even more precious cargo. Join us as we tell the stories of four rail journeys that changed modern history, involving Churchill, Lenin, Hungarian gold, and the Kindertransport, which saved about 10,000 Jewish children from certain death.
