Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Future engineers and conductors will enjoy this fun and fact-filled entry in the Cutaway series. Richards introduces the reader-friendly topic of trains, from early steam locomotives to high-speed bullets. Eye-catching, full-color spreads that show cross-sections of train cars reveal the workings of different kinds of engines, as well as the varying degrees of luxury their passenger cars offer. Readers learn that the background of such legendary choo-choos as "the flying Scotsman," and "the Big Boy. `' Equally fascinating is the information presented on MagLevs, now in use in Europe and Japan. (glossary, index) (Picture book. 7-11) .

    Wonderful "Look-inside views"

    Wonderful illustrations that my child has studied over and over! Similiar titles (trucks, fire engines, planes) by the same author are fabulous for young, curious minds in search of what goes on inside different vehicles and things that go! A must have for young boys aspiring to be engineers, perhaps!
