Peter’s Railway is an intriguing story about Peter and his Grandpa building and operating a miniature steam railway on a farm. In this book there is an adventure with a snowplough, building a watermill to power the farm and a daring rescue mission! Apart from the appeal of making something useful out of scrap, the watermill also gives Peter the opportunity to learn all about electricity, energy and power. The technical aspects explained include: Snow plough; Ice and why it floats and bursts boilers; Electricity, lamps and switches; Watermill; Energy and power; Electric motor and generator; Driving a locomotive; Boiler and cylinders. There are 14 pages of simple 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
