The latest series of Michael Portillo’s railway journeys sees him travelling all the way from Boston to Toronto.

He starts by riding in the USA’s first underground railway system in Boston and dining on oysters in the city’s oldest restaurant. Portillo then travels to Lowell, the home of the country’s industrial revolution.

Great American Railroad Journeys is on every weekday at 18.30 on BBC Two.
