T. W. Van Metre, Professor of Transportation at Columbia University, set out to tell his son the story of our railroads. There were so many questions and he became so interested in his story that it grew into a book and is now available for other children and their parents.
With directness and simplicity the author describes American railroading. The list of chapter headings indicates its complete and logical development :
Our Steam Railroads
The Railroad Track
The Steam Locomotive
Electric Locomotives
Freight Cars
Passenger Train Cars
Tomorrow's Trains Become Today's
Passenger Stations and Terminals
Freight Terminals
The Operation of Trains
In the new Fourth Edition the author brings the subject up-to-date. There is a new chapter on streamlined trains, additions to three chapters and 25 new illustrations from "Railway Age."
