The Supertrain Of 1979 Will Blow Your Mind

A nuclear-powered bullet train that was equipped with amenities more appropriate to a cruise ship, it had luxuries such as swimming pools and shopping centers.

Supertrain was an American television drama/adventure series that ran on NBC from February 7 to May 5, 1979. Nine episodes were made. Most of the cast of a given episode were guest stars. The production was elaborate, with huge sets and a high-tech model train for outside shots.

Supertrain was the most expensive series ever aired in the United States at the time.

The production was beset by problems including a model train that crashed… it received poor reviews and low ratings… it went off air after only three months.
