In this follow-up to How Cities Work and How Airports Work, young readers travel through history and around the world to find out everything they ever wanted to know about trains.

And don't forget to dress up-we'll take you on some luxurious journeys including the Trans-Siberian Railway from Moscow to Vladivostok, and The Ghan, which runs all the way across Australia!

How Trains Work is jam-packed with amazing facts and awesome illustrations, and was created in consultation with Anthony Coulls, Senior Curator of Rail Transport & Technology, National Railway Museum, UK.
