Long ago, the first locomotive was set down on a track before carrying its load to its destination at walking pace. Two centuries later, trains routinely race around the world at speeds of several hundred kilometres per hour. The book shows the very most interesting trains, including an enormous steam locomotive called Big Boy, the distinguished Orient Express, the shunter locomotive, and Japan’s Shinkansen.

  • Rich historical insights: From their earliest steam-powered origins to their modern high-speed iterations.
  • Illustrations: The book contains meticulously accurate illustrations.
