Peter's Railway is the story about a young boy who lives with his family in a cottage at the edge of his Grandpa's farm. To make visiting each other more fun and easier, Peter and Grandpa build a miniature steam railway.
They have some adventures along the way and use all sorts of machines and tools to help them in their great building project. When they are having a rest, Grandpa tells Peter some amazing stories from the old times on the railways.
The story ends with the grand opening ceremony with the first steam train running the full length of the scenic railway, through the fields, woods and past the river.
Many technical ideas are simply explained as they go along, with parts of the steam engine and railway being explored.
Hardback, 30 watercolour pictures. There are 14 pages of simple technical drawings to explain, add interest and answer questions.
