From Booklist:

Ages 3-8. In Simon's signature style, each double-page spread in this picture book sets a dramatic close-up photo of a moving train opposite a few sentences about the train's source of power (steam, diesel, electric) and how it works. The full-color, close-up pictures by a number of photographers will grab even young preschoolers--from the long-range view of the old steam locomotive pulling a line of passenger cars through the mountains to the close-ups of hopper cars carrying grain, coal, or gravel. The astonishing facts will interest older train buffs, whether the author is writing about the breathtaking speeds of today's electric trains or computerized freight yards where cars are sorted and separated. Simon captures the combination of technology and romantic adventure that gives these machines their enduring appeal. Hazel Rochman
