THE FIRST BOOK OF TRAINS

An efficient account of and railroading collects information about all kinds of American trains, their particular functions and how they run and are run. Beginning with a general survey of railway activity, Mr. Hamilton moves from this into an outline of carrying cars. First he talks about freight trains and then about passenger carriers. More technical details follow- of the locomotive and its job, of the men who work the and work in the yards, of signals, station regulations, railroad history and so forth. There is ample here to satisfy young interests.
