The fourth book in the Peter’s Railway series. Peter and his Grandpa have plenty more railway and steam adventures. This time their miniature steam railway across the farm becomes a village lifeline.
The main construction project is the building of a watermill to generate electricity. This introduces the reader to many fundamental engineering and scientific ideas including energy, power and electricity.
Following the unique format of the previous books, the story is accompanied by how-it-works pages which explain the technical aspects of the story. They are at the end of relevant chapters and do not interfere with the story. However, many readers seem to read the technical pages and then go on to read the story.
Colin P Smith, Director of Engineering and Technology at Rolls Royce PLC said “these books will capture the imagination of our future engineers”.
