This is another one of those train books that I grew up with. It’s a great story about a little freight train that was unappreciated by the big excursion trains. It went along it’s merry way collecting freight cars and delivering goods until one day the big, bad excursion train had broken down. All the passengers climbed on board the little freight train who brought them all home safely to the station. The little freight train had saved the day.
The illustrations in this book are awesome. It displays the freight train going from stop to stop to pick up tank cars, box cars, flat cars and more. My favorite is the camp site that it travels through. This train book dates back to the 1950’s.
