Ken Burns' The Age Of the Iron Horse

Narrator: "The Golden Age of railroads was
initiated by a few brilliant inventors, fueled
by the labor of the poor and disenfranchised, was
given impetus by the graft of corrupt politicians,
culminated in the triumph of greedy railroad barons,
and ended in millions asking just why the hell the
damn trains never can run on time."

THE END
