Train lovers of all ages will welcome this collection of ready-to-color illustrations of historic railroad engines—from primitive steam-powered locomotives of the early 1800s to the fast, brawny, and reliable diesel electric trains of the mid-20th century. Models include Trevithick's Locomotive (1803-04), the first steam locomotive to run on rails; the American General (1852), the Broadway Limited (1914), The Super Chief (1946), Japan's "Bullet" train (1964), France's high-speed TGV (Le Train Grande Vitesse-1981), and more. Dover Original. 45 black-and-white illustrations. 7 in full-color on the covers.
