    Revisit the golden age of trains with these two delightful illustrated children’s stories from the early 20th century!Painstakingly prepared for new lives in the digital age, these books about vintage trains were written and illustrated at a time when nearly everyone rode the rails – including children. Because of that, the stories captured the imaginations of little ones around the world. Turn-of-the-century children were captivated by the allure of mighty steam trains that sent vapor high up into the sky and whizzed through the countryside at what at the time must have seemed to be tremendous speed. And now a whole new generation of children -- and adults -- can appreciate the wonderful old trains from that era.2 Illustrated Vintage Train Stories contains high-quality reproductions from the following books about antique trains: The Fast ExpressOriginally published by M. A. Donohue & Co. in 1917, The Fast Express features a marriage of sepia-tone illustrations and text, along with brightly colored drawings of life in and around old trains. It focuses on the adventures of young brother and sister George and Edith Foster as they go on a train journey by themselves to visit their aunt. My Book of TrainsOriginally published by Saalfield Publishing Company in 1919, My Book of Trains features lush colored illustrations from the turn of the 20th century. The illustrations focus on types of trains, the parts of a train and the depot, giving both fun and educational glimpses into the world of trains in a way that is accessible to children as well as adults.

    The Alameda story begins in 1864, and laments the last of rail in 1960. Within that period this heavily illustrated history deals with ferries (crossing the Bay to San Francisco), transcontinental rail (this being the first tidewater terminus for a couple months), streetcars, bridges, and the tunnel to Oakland. Photo quality is fair to good, and many fine maps (often reproduced at a very small scale) greatly enhance the historic value of the work.

    For more than five decades, the spirit of E. M. Frimbo chugged through the pages of The New Yorker, chronicling adventures on rails broad and narrow around the world. This greatly expanded edition of All Aboard with E. M. Frimbo combines all thirty-three of the Frimbo pieces published to great acclaim in 1974 with twenty-one previously uncollected articles, chosen by the intrepid traveler's friend and amanuensis, Tony Hiss. Here, for the first time in book form, are The Old Curmudgeon's search for lost Louis Sullivan masterpieces in Manhattan, and a journey through Wales to the ninteenth-century village immortalized in the futuristic television series The Prisoner. Other articles record Frimbo's special honors, such as the christening of a restored vintage coach in his name, and a final tribute to him, appropriately mounted at Cumbres Pass, the highest elevation reached by passenger trains in the United States.
