The train backs up,

cameras are readied,

and then a sweet symphony

for every train-buff's ear.

The train station in Chattanooga

has been transformed

into an entertainment center.

When the train returns to Huntsville,

Dr. and Mrs. Lonie Lindsey

stay on in Chattanooga for dinner

in a refurbished diner.

They remember

another train trip long ago.

We got on the train in Tuscumbia,

Alabama and we went to Chattanooga.

Went up to the courthouse

and we got married.

That was 55 years ago,

and we've had a

very lovely marriage so far.

And here 55 years later,

we do the same start-over again.

The most popular rooms at the Choo-Choo

Hilton Hotel are old train cars,

Nostalgic setting

for recapturing fond memories.

For those who love

to ride steam trains,

each trip is a journey into the past.

In the beginning, steam engines were at

the center of the Industrial Revolution

which could not even begin until

mankind learned one crucial trick

how to transform heat energy

into motion.

In the first century A.D.,

the Greek scholar, Hero of Alexandria,

invented steam-jet propulsion.

Hero's ingenious device remained

a toy until 1712

when Thomas Newcomen developed the

first successful steam engine

Newcomen's engine was used to

pump water out of coal mines.

One hundred years passed before

the first British-built steam

locomotives took to the rails.

Soon the public everywhere crossed

the threshold of a new age

as horses were replaced by the

latest locomotive invention.

Today, these early engines can

usually be seen only at museums,

where they seem

as distant as dinosaurs.

The John Bull is the oldest

operable steam engine in the world.

To mark the 150th anniversary of

its first American trial,

the Smithsonian Institution

brought it out

for a run along
