Trains have always been fascinating to both children and adults-from the trains under the Christmas tree to the big super-specials that whizz across continents. Trains have played a thrilling and vital part, too, in the building of our own country, particularly in the settlement of the West. The development of communication and transportation, the part science plays in railroading, how trains are kept moving in good weather and bad, how to build a model railroad, the story of the personalities who have made a unique contribution to railroading-all this Norman Carlisle gives us in this comprehensive story of railroading in this country. There is, also, a glossary of the terms and words that railroad men use, for they have a language all their own. This is a book that will tell you much about the favorite hobby of boys and girls everywhere.
Partial Table of contents:
Rails west, famous rides and speed records, streamlined power, signposts of the rails, rolling cargo, the railroad goes to war, timber trains, strange trains and railroads, more.
