Great American Railroad Journeys sees Michael Portillo travel the largest rail network in the world using his 1879 Appleton’s General Guide to help him to understand the America of today. This season, Michael leaves the US and heads north, embarking on a 1770 kilometre railroad journey from Boston, Massachusetts, across the border to Toronto in the Canadian province of Ontario.
