Railroads were essential to industry and travel in the 19th and 20th centuries, and trains still fascinate us today. This 2-in-1 book profiles 50 milestones in railroad history for readers 8 and up and also provides cardstock paper models of each engine, from the 1830 Best Friend of Charleston, whose passengers rode "on the wings of the wind" at 25 miles per hour, to modern maglev trains that travel at ten times that speed. Rail fans can read about and build famous engines like the LNER Mallard and Flying Scotsman, the Zephyr and the Super Chief, streetcars, subways, and bullet trains. Just punch out the pieces and match the numbered tabs—we recommend quick-drying craft glue and adult assistance for the more challenging assembly steps (and we expect a few grownups will want to build some themselves).
