BKLYN Picture Books about Trains and Subways
Annotation:Choo Choo! Kids love trains! Especially the old-timey steam engines found in amusement parks and zoos. But what about a super-speeder in Japan that zooms on the track at 361 miles per hour? Or the world's longest freight train, stretching on for a whopping 4.6 miles?
Annotation:Introduces the history of trains, from the nineteenth-century steam locomotives that bridged the American East and West to the Japanese "pusher" commuter trains and the Scottish train used as the Hogwarts Express in the "Harry Potter" films.
