"Train lovers of all ages will appreciate these ready-to-color illustrations of historic railroad engines. The collection ranges from the groundbreaking steam-powered locomotives that appeared in the early 1800s--& helped usher in the Industrial Revolution--to today's sleek Acela Express, the first electrified high-speed train to operate in the United States.
Models include Trevithick's Locomotive (1803-04), the first steam locomotive to run on rails; the English 'Stourbridge Lion' (1829), the first steam-powered railroad engine to be used in America; the versatile 'General' (1852); the streamlined 'Broadway Limited' (1914); Britain's famous passenger train, the 'Flying Scotsman' (1922); 'The Rocket' (1937) of the Rock Island Line; the innovative diesel-electric locomotive, 'The Super Chief' (1946); Japan's high-speed 'Bullet' train (1964); & the even faster 'TGV' ('Le Train Grande Vitesse' ) of France, which can reach speeds up to 195 mph. Each of the 44 illustrations is accompanied by an informative caption"
