Great picture book related to the history trains. I wish there was a bit more on diesel engines. With that said it is a picture book with limited history of trains. It is great to look at with kids. A great resource for those just getting into learning about trains. Could be a good stepping stone for further research on trains. This book could help narow a period of interest and point in the right direction for further research/learning.
