Destination America Renews ‘Railroad Alaska’

Destination America is returning to Alaska.

The Discovery owned cable network has renewed Railroad Alaska for a second season, which is set to premiere on Saturday October 25th at 9/8c, TVWise has learned.

Railroad Alaska follows an elite crew who live along Alask’a critical railway as they tirelessly work to keep the train rolling 365 days a year in order to deliver life-sustaining supplies to Americans living off the grid and miles away from civilization. Tom Langan and Jane McGoldrick serve as series producers on the series, which is produced by indie Wind Fall Films. The executive producers are Carlo Massarella, David Dugan and Caroline Perez.

“We’re thrilled that Destination America has commissioned Railroad Alaska for a second season”, said Executive Producer Carlo Massarella. “The mix of off-grid homesteaders striving to survive Alaska’s brutal winters, the railroad crews putting their lives on the line to keep trains running, and the incredible landscapes make this a compelling watch”.

“Living in the wild is some American’s dream and those who choose this lifestyle take advantage of the beauty, power and romance that Alaska has to offer, especially the majestic Alaskan Railroad,”  added Marc Etkind, General Manager of Destination America. “In Railroad Alaska, viewers will come to realize that nothing beats the sights and sounds of a 70 ton locomotive emerging from a treacherous snow covered mountain pass.”
