Synopsis

Trains can carry
grain and gravel,
milk and machines,
cars and computers,
pipes and people.

Seymour Simon's exploration of these very different trains and their uses, combined with his characteristically eye-catching full-color photographs, captures the beauty and power of steam trains, diesel trains, electric trains, and more -- all at work!
