9781596431645: The Last Train

A picture book about an old train station from a bygone era.

The golden age of the railroad may have passed, but its legacy still fascinates us. Based on a song by the acclaimed musician Gordon Titcomb, The Last Train is a beautiful celebration of that bygone era. Titcomb's lyrics are matched by Wendell Minor's handsome, richly-detailed paintings.

ALL ABOARD! "What a gorgeous tribute this is that preserves as it distills for future generations the life of a little railroad station."―Arlo Guthrie

About the Author:

GORDON TITCOMB is a composer and musician who has played with many well known artists including Arlo Guthrie, Hank Williams, Jr., Paul Simon, Emmylou Harris, Judy Collins, and Willie Nelson. THE LAST TRAIN is Gordon's first book for children. Gordon lives in Winsted, CT.

WENDELL MINOR is an award-winning illustrator of over forty picture books for children, including Buzz Aldrin's LOOK TO THE STARS and AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL. As a child he remembers visiting the Burlington Railroad roundhouse in his hometown of Aurora, IL, to watch the big steam engines come and go. Wendell now lives in Washington, CT.

From AudioFile:

Based on Gordon Titcomb's song of the same name, THE LAST TRAIN is an elegiac tribute to a different era, when trains rumbled across the countryside and a man could work for the railroads all his life. Titcomb narrates gently, his subtle rural accent appropriate to the text. Authentic background sounds of train whistles and chirping country insects add atmosphere. Wendell Minor's detailed paintings are a gorgeous and evocative accompaniment--a spread about the MIDNIGHT FLYER, rendered in beautiful deep blues, shows the train speeding across the pages, engine smoke trailing behind and a wash of nighttime stars overhead. Listeners will especially appreciate the bonus at the end of the recording: Titcomb singing his song. Young train lovers will be fascinated. J.M.D. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
