ALL A-BORED!

DESTINATION AMERICA TAKES A LOCO(MOTIVE) APPROACH TO THANKSGIVING WITH THE SLOOOOOOWEST HOLIDAY SPECIAL EVER: "RAILROAD ALASKA: REAL TIME TRAIN RIDE"

- Thanksgiving Special Airs Thursday, November 26 from 9am-2pm ET Followed by an Encore -

- RAILROAD ALASKA Returns for Season 3 on Saturday, November 14 at 10/9c -

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Is the yule log too exciting for you? When turkey isn't enough to put you to sleep on Thanksgiving, Destination America has the snoozefest you need. Over the course of five loooong hours, Destination America will air a first: the real-time journey of a train traversing Alaska's critical 500-mile long railroad. You will see nothing - or, almost nothing other than what the cameras themselves see attached to the train. Simply park your caboose on the couch and settle into a mesmerizingly monotonous holiday edition of Destination America's hit series RAILROAD ALASKA. Unlike the action-packed full series it's based on, RAILROAD ALASKA: REAL TIME TRAIN RIDE is a classic cure for insomnia, sure to induce ZZZs from Anchorage to Atlanta and guaranteed to make you lose your train of thought. RAILROAD ALASKA: REAL TIME TRAIN RIDE airs Thursday, November 26 from 9am-2pm ET with an encore immediately following. However, it is not suggested that you watch all 10 hours after eating turkey and that sleep inducing stuff in it. Destination America will not be responsible for the comatose results that might well follow.

"Most networks compete to produce the most exciting show, which we already accomplished with our first, ever, live televised exorcism last month," said Henry Schleiff, Group President at Discovery. "We also want to own the other end of the spectrum, providing viewers with the single most boring program ever to appear on television during Thanksgiving... even more boring than the Detroit Lions football game."

Unlike stressful Thanksgiving travel, RAILROAD ALASKA: REAL TIME TRAIN RIDE is all about the journey... to putting on your jammies, that is. It has so many choo choos, you'll want to chuga chuga one more glass of holiday punch and zone out on the couch.

The special is based on Destination America's action-packed hit series RAILROAD ALASKA, which returns for its third season on Saturday, November 14 at 10/9c. RAILROAD ALASKA follows a hard-core crew of railroaders as they battle the elements to ensure the trains of Alaska's vital artery keep running. The railroad is the lifeline of Alaska delivering crucial supplies to the hearty homesteaders that call this unspoiled, and unforgiving, countryside home. These rail crews wage a never-ending battle against mother-nature braving bone chilling temperatures to clear avalanches and fix earthquake damage. In the merciless wilderness of Alaska failure is never an option. For the off-grid homesteaders, if the trains stop running it could mean the difference between life and death.

RAILROAD ALASKA and RAILROAD ALASKA: REAL TIME TRAIN RIDE are produced by Windfall Films with Carlo Massarella and Jane McGoldrick as executive producers and Gwyn Williams as series producer. For Destination America, Caroline Perez is executive producer, Jane Latman is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, and American Heroes Channel.
