Peter’s Railway is the story about a young boy who lives with his family in a cottage at the edge of his Grandpa’s farm. To make visiting each other more fun, Peter and Grandpa build a miniature steam railway. They have adventures along the way and use all sorts of machines and tools to help them in their great building project. When they are having a rest, Grandpa tells Peter some amazing-but-true stories from the old times on the railways. 

Many technical ideas are explored in the books, with the steam engine and railway being explained in special pages at the ends of chapters. There are also 14 pages of simple but accurate technical drawings to explain, add interest and answer questions

The books are written by Christopher Vine, a Chartered Engineer who loves railways and anything mechanical or electrical. They are his way of passing on his love and knowledge of engineering to today’s youngsters
