When they had been a familiar sight: iron horses belching smoke and steam, chugging out of depots and racing across the countryside. Chock-full of facts, and featuring stunning full-color and archival photographs of steam locomotives inside the United States, Canada, and also other countries, this book will fire the imagination of any young reader who ever dreamed of getting behind the throttle of a mighty steam locomotive. He traces the improvement of the steam locomotive from early engines, such as the little Tom Thumb, to"Big Boy,"the biggest locomotive ever built. Those spectacular steam locomotives are gone. He explains how steam locomotives work; how they are classified; why they had been vanquished by the diesel; and why those magnificent machines nevertheless hold us spellbound. But in this fascinating book, Karl Zimmermann, an authority on trains, takes young readers back to a colorful era of railroad history.
