In this, the sixth book in the series, Grandpa and the children complete a small steam locomotive, and the find out how fast it can go. During the adventures on the little farm railway, they learn about railway speed records and the concept of mechanical power. Grandpa also tells the children more of his amazing-but-true stories.
Accompanying the story are clearly explained technical pages with how-it-works information. They are at the end of relevant chapters and do not interfere with the story. The ideas explored in this book will encourage a deep understanding of science and physics. If the reader has enjoyed the technical information in the previous books, they will find that Racing Trains takes them further.
Josie G said “After reading the books, Toby is determined to build a railway. Luckily he’s grudgingly agreed to go o school and university to learn how to be an engineer first!”
