Jack loves visiting Grandpa in his old train carriage. He loves helping him in the train museum. And he loves hearing his stories about trains and railways. From runaway engines to people-powered carriages, train-robbing bushrangers and lifesaving pointsmen, Grandpa always has a tale to pass the time. Best of all, every one of them is true. 

Join Jack and his Grandpa as they journey through Australian railway history — and try to save the town’s precious train museum.
Budding young train enthusiasts will love poring over the historic photos and facts and figures at the end of each chapter, and testing their knowledge in the ‘Train Your Brain’ quizzes.
