Here is the song of the train. Listen as it rushes past big cities and small towns. Listen as it sweeps through forests and fields and into tunnels. Hear the whistle wailing, brakes squealing, wheels rolling, r-o-l-l-i-n-g, stop. Now the train is homeward bound. All aboard!

Editorial Reviews

"In the relentless rhythm of the rolling wheel, this book revels in the movement, sights, and sounds of train transport. The rhyme and rhythm will appeal to children, the pictures are sure to persuade adults to sign on for a nostalgic ride through the past [as] Wimmer celebrates the bygone elegance of dining cars and the charms of vernacular architecture. A paean to the romance of the railroad." (School Library Journal)
