Chris Tarrant returns for more tretcherous journeys on the world's most extreme railways.
For Chris Tarrant, travelling by train is the best possible way to explore a country, meet the real people and unlock its culture and history. In the second series of Extreme Railways he explores some of the most beautiful environments on Earth - the Andes Mountains in Bolivia and Chile, the jungles of Thailand and Myanmar, the Siberian Arctic, the tropical island of Cuba, the Canadian wilderness, and weird and wonderful Japan. Travelling on an amazing variety of trains, old, new, fast and extremely slow, Chris sees each country, rich in history, culture and stunning scenery, form the inside out, taking it all in his stride with humour, passion and good old fashioned curiosity.
