A History Channel program airing Tuesday night will follow a Railex train as it hauls produce from Wallula, Wash., to the company’s east coast terminus in Rotterdam.
The company’s operations will be the subject of the hour-long “Extreme Trains” episode airing at 10 p.m. Tuesday, according to the History Channel’s Web site.
Paul Esposito, vice president of sales and logistics for Railex, said the episode will offer an inside look of how the company teamed with Union Pacific to move food across the country in less than five days. He said the program was filmed about three months ago and features the various techniques the company uses to keep produce fresh during its coast-to-coast journey.
“They follow it from tree to plate,” he said.
Hosted by Matt Bown, “Extreme Trains” delves into the inner workings of the railroads and the difficult conditions many work under to keep them running. In addition to featuring existing railroad services, the program examines how trains have helped shape American history
