Trains can carry
grain and gravel,
milk and machines,
cars and computers,
pipes and people.
Seymour Simon′s exploration of these very different trains and their uses, combined with his characteristically eye-catching full-color photographs, captures the beauty and power of steam trains, diesel trains, electric trains, and more -- all at work!
“Simon captures the combination of technology and romantic adventure that gives these machines their enduring appeal.”
“These are exactly the cool pictures for which the younger nonfiction set clamors.”
“Young trainiacs rejoice…Big machinery has never looked better. ”
