Watched one episode. Not enough trains and too many people who are train wrecks.
Wife and I were curious because when we were in Skagway, AK on display was a huge locomotive with a rotating snow cutter/thrower on the front of it. That is the kind of stuff I wanted to see. Now using the howitzer to start avalanches was cool, but I have seen that several times on IRT.
The couple who "just discovered" they were out of propane was a joke. How about you order some propane when you hook the last tank up, not when you randomly check on the day the camera is there and then freak out. Felt a little sorry for the 40 year old virgin though.
That you can probably blame that on the director who wanted to put urgency into the script and changed the ordinary task to an emergency one. That's the difference between a reality and a documentary program. The director doesn't feel comfortable with ordinary hardships. They want life to be fill with drama moments.
To enjoy the show, you must learn to ignore the director foolishness of making a hard life even more unbelievable with fake emergencies.
