Supertrain Site Sources
Archive of American Television
Includes the 13-part interview with Fred Silverman. Information provided in the interview
was used across the "Supertrain" site.
Future Life, May 1979
Includes the article, "Designing Supertrain" with pictures of the train's interiors.
The Last Great Ride
This is Brandon Tartikoff's 1995 story about his days with
NBC-TV. It really doesn't feature a great amount of "Supertrain" information. Remember Tartikoff had little to
do with NBC during the days of "Supertrain," but the series is mentioned. Anyone with an interest in network TV
and especially NBC will enjoy the time spent reading this entertaining Random House publication.
Defunct magazine that devoted eight pages to a great
"Supertrain" article titled "SUPER MODEL" by Ed Stauss that includes numerous color and b&w images
from the production of the series.
TV Guide March
Contains the four page article "SUPERTOY"
with color pictures of "Supertrain" sets and models. "Supertrain" is pre-empted that week and is therefore not
among the listings.
Up The Tube: Prime-Time TV and The Silverman
Excellent look at both the career of Fred
Silverman and the world of network TV in the 1970s. This 300 hundred page book was published by Vikinig Press
in 1981 and written by Sally Bedell. Not often seen, but also not difficult to track down a copy.
It is a must read for any student of television with an interest in the 1970s.
