Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the story of railroads — from the days of steam to the high-speed, sophisticated trains of today. Here is a spectacular and informative new look at the fascinating world of trains. Stunning real-life photographs of steam, diesel and electric locomotives, freight and passenger cars, engines and signals offer an "eyewitness" view of the history and development of railroads. See the oldest steam engine in existence, Queen Victoria's royal carriage, the fastest steam train ever built, a traveling post office, and train tickets from all over the world. Learn how a steam engine works, how early engineers avoided collisions, how railroads were built, the difference between narrow, standard, and wide gauge. Discover the longest railroad in the world, how trains climb up steep hills, which train has no wheels, how the railroads crossed American, how subway systems are built, how a driverless train works, and much, much more.

Synopsis:

Traces the development of railways from the first Babylonian rutways to the electromagnetic, driverless trains of today and describes how trains are built and operated.
