They hinted at the lack of steam powered transportation last episode. All of the large scale ships were destroyed during the war to surpress the peoples' ability to travel.

This show is becoming much better to the point of looking forward to each week.

The acting is horrific in this show, BUT  Charlie, the worst actress i have ever seen, is very HOT and will b unclothed nxt episode it seems!!!   Looking to forward to this.. lol.. The show has potential.. the story line is very cool, but it feels like they are rushing thro every scene just to get it done, when i feel they should put a little more creativity into the story as to what the world has become and how people are dealing with haveing no power for over 15 yeatrs now.. that to me would b more interesting than just getting thro each scene to rapidily get to the ending.. i.e  when we find out that Jason is the captains son.. that was cool and it would have been much cooler if it was in the season finale.. not 3 episodes intot the show.  IMHO

   How many steam powered locomotive engines are around that could be truly used? How many years did people wait around hoping/praying the power was going to come back on before the idea even came up to use a steam powered train? Its not hard to extrapolate the chaos of this world being plunged into darkness , the fight for food , shelter and survival that every individual person is going to experience...then the slow sense of purpose of a militia rising up and establishing some sort of control for better and worse. Now lets assume the militia leader gets a brainstorm of getting  a steam locomotive going ...the logistics of finding people who can do this since communication has now regressed to the level of the pony express , clearing/repairing tracks , getting a train into working order and people to run it , etc etc etc. Stop being so nit picky ...the series has remained watchable and they are trying to use logic in figuring the consequences of no power ..the antique guns I thought were brilliant.

 I'm actually really digging this show - was completely not expecting to enjoy it so much. I don't think the acting is all that bad though. It took me a bit to get over seeing Gus Fring on horseback, but man, Giancarlo Esposito really brings it. He really elevates every scene he's in. 

Literally the only moments that took me out of the show wer the moments where Neville was throwing leather. Not because Giancarlo didn't sell the scenes - he really did - but because of the physical mechanics. This is the problem with actors doing fight scenes - if the mechanics aren't right, it's sloppy. I see the same issue with almost every female fight scene - sloppy, weak, posture and strikes - wide open defence and throwing from the shoulder, not the hip. 

Billy Burke however, his movements are showy and sloppy in their own way, but similar to some of the more traditional Asian martial arts, which use whole body movement a lot more.

Still - I give this bad boy two thumbs up.
