An icon of the Industrial Revolution, railroads were essential to the progress of the 19th and 20th centuries. Today’s trains travel at speeds up to 268 miles per hour and continue to push the limits. Trains: A Complete History provides an excellent overview of the train models that were groundbreaking in their respective eras. The scope of progress comes to life on these pages from the 1830 Best Friend of Charleston, whose passengers were to said to have traveled "on the wings of the wind" at a whopping top speed of 25 miles per hour, to the 2012 hybrid-powered Japan Railway HD300, which uses 36 percent less fuel than traditional trains and travels at speeds up to 70 miles per hour. Complete with a detachable collection of press-out model train pieces, Trains: A Complete History is the two-in-one book that will have train enthusiasts tooting their horns and hollering, "All aboard!"
