Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Trains and Railroads provides considerable depth, tracing the history of train development over the last 200 years. Once the basics of steam power and the working of steam trains are mastered, readers learn about the impact that trains had on society and commerce. Travel across the vast United States was simplified and goods flowed freely. The twentieth century brought diesel and electric trains and tomorrow we may see more floating or "maglev" trains.
