Readers will encounterthe Jacobite--a Scottish train that plays the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter films. They will learn about the great steam locomotives that crossed the United States, joining east and west in 1869. They will travel the world, visiting Japanese commuter trains so busy that men called "pushers" pack people in! And they will learn about the different technologies­­--steam, diesel, electric, and electromagnetic­­that continue to make trains such an important part of our modern world.
