This could be interesting/informative depending on how they do it. And 
if it is well-received, maybe they could do a sequel on the various 
transcontinental railroads that linked the various parts of the country. 
They could even do an episode on the first expedition to cross the 
country by car. A young army officer named Eisenhower - destined to be 
president a few decades later - was on that expedition.
