Trains By Lynn Curlee. The story of railroads with an emphasis on the age of steam and the impact it had on the world is the subject of this interesting book. You’ll start at the beginning and go through expansion of the west, the Civil war, competition of Railroads and into modern times. The bold, graphic acrylic paintings are a perfect match for sleek, dark dirty locomotives, modern engines, and sprawling landscapes of the countryside. Complete with a chart in the back on “how a steam locomotive works.” Hardbound. 48 pages. 10” x 11”.
