Explanation of the Book:

The Caldecott Medal Winner, Sibert Honor Book, and New York Times bestseller Locomotive is a rich and detailed sensory exploration of America’s early railroads, from the creator of the “stunning” (Booklist) Moonshot. It is the summer of 1869, and trains, crews, and family are traveling together, riding America’s brand-new transcontinental railroad. These pages come alive with descriptive details of the journey: the sounds, speed, and strength of the mighty locomotives; the work that keeps them moving; and the thrill of travel from plains to mountain to ocean. Come sit inside the caboose, feel the heat of the engine, watch the landscape race by. Come ride the rails, come cross the young country!

Explanation of the Book:

Railway art has existed as long as there have been Railways. Many famous names have included some aspect of railways in their paintings, notably Claude Monet and J M W Turner. This tradition has been kept alive by the formation in the UK of the Guild of Railway Artists, which now consists of over 200 artists, of which Jonathan Clay is one. Over the last few years, Jonathan has had many requests to produce his own book of pictures, and, having relented at last, this is the result.??In order to save time for his first ever railway event in 1999, he painted a series of locomotive pictures without backgrounds, intending to add the scenery later. However, they sold so well, that they became the norm, and the series of 'Locomotive Portraits' was born.

Explanation of the Book:

In 1877, Ephraim Shay designed a steam locomotive that featured a side-mounted set of cylinders. These in turn drove longitudinal shafts, which powered the wheels of both the locomotive and tender. This ¿geared locomotive¿ developed terrific tractive effort. The Lima Locomotive Works of Ohio, produced the first Shay locomotive in 1880. A little more than two decades later, when this catalog was produced, the company was producing three different classes of Shays. The last engine was built in 1945 and still operates at the Cass Scenic Railroad in West Virginia. This reproduction catalog is a wonderful resource for the model railroader, train spotter, and rail enthusiast.
