    Peter and Grandpa's miniature railway runs between their houses. They use it to visit each other and have had many adventures. The steam locomotive, Fiery Fox, is a wonderful machine, but takes ages to get ready. In this book an unexpected gift from an old lady comes in very handy. You may think that melting metal in a home workshop is far-fetched. Far from it. Grandpa Gerald, on whom these stories are based, built a mini foundary in a barn which could melt iron. His locomotive, 'Invicta', was built using home made castings. You can see him driving it in Peter's Railway and the Forgotten Engine.

    This is the second book in the Peter's Railway series. Peter and his Grandpa build more track and equipment for their railway across the farm and go on a visit to the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway. As usual, Grandpa tells stories from the old railways and Peter helps him to build and run the railway. In this book he learns to drive the locomotive. Accompanying the story are simple technical pages with how-it-works information. They are at the end of relevant chapters, but do not need to be looked at to enjoy the story.

    In their most ambitious adventure yet, Peter and Grandpa have been asked to 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. Of course they would love to build the new line, but how can they possibly afford to pay for it? There is science and engineering in the story but, if the reader want to go deeper, theres is more in the technical pages at the ends of chapters.

    Peter and his Grandpa have plenty more railway and steam adventures. This time their miniature steam railway across the farm becomes the village lifeline. The main construction project is the building of a watermill to generate electricity. This introduces the reader to many fundamental engineering and scientific ideas including energy, power and electricity. Following the unique format of the previous books, the story is accompanied by how-it-works pages which explain the technical aspects of the story. They are at the end of relevant chapters and do not interfere with the story. However many readers seem to read the techinal pages first and then go on to the story!

    While there are lots of railway books for very young readers, there is very little to follow on and maintain their interest as they grow older and more enquiring. The major part of this book is a story about a railway but there is also lots of simple techinical, or how-it-works, information. The intention is for the story to interest the reader first, with the information there to feed the interest and answer some questions. It is not nesessary to look at the techincal pages to understand the story. These pages are all in a boundary box and at the end of relevant chapters.
