This is a near fine (almost like new) paperback. 2002 Fog City Books. This copy is crisp and clean inside and out. The pages are still crisp and clean with no markings seen. The binding is tight and straight, NO creasing along spine. The cover is still clean and shiny with only very light shelf wear. Slightly larger size, near imperial octavo or 7" x 11" with 264 pages including index and glossary.

Which is the world's steepest railroad? How do diesel trains work? Who designed the first steam engine? The story of trains and train travel encompasses great feats of engineering, the romance of the steam age, the expansion of cities, winning of wars, and more. A Guide to Trains is an extraordinary journey through the history of trains around the world. It is lavishly illustrated with color photos and vintage black and white photos that accompany the engaging text.
