Peter’s Railway is an intriguing story about Peter and his Grandpa building and operating a miniature steam railway on a farm. In Book 5 their most ambitious adventure yet, our two heroes are asked if they could extend their mini railway to the village of Oaksted. It is five miles across the fields and will bring children to school, saving fuel and pollution. There is science and engineering in the story but, if the reader wants to go deeper, there is more in the technical pages at the ends of chapters. As an extra dimension in this story, Peter starts a company and becomes an entrepreneur. During breaks in construction work, Grandpa tells some more of his historic stories about the old railways. 

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. In each book there are 10 pages of simple technical drawings to explain, add interest and answer questions.
