Peter’s Railway is an intriguing story about Peter and his Grandpa building and operating a miniature steam railway on a farm. 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. There are hardback books, paperbacks, and an Activity book. Between them they cover a huge range of stories, engineering and science.
“At last here is a book for train loving kids who have grown out of the more junior railway books. They will love it !”
Pete Waterman, OBE

Millie Darnell, age 10
Thanks, Chris, for the wonderful books. My grandson (and I) love them!
I love the books! The stories are so beautiful, playful and positive and the writing is clear and elegant.
I would like you to know how much he (and his Dad) enjoyed the books – both the stories and the technical information.
They helped him to understand many of the basic principles of Physics, which he now loves!
My name is Nathan and I’m 7 years old. I absolutely love your books and I only need 2 hardback books and 1 paperback then I’ve got the whole series of peter’s railway.
Nathan - age 7
Our son is 5 and learning to read – we are hoping more of your fab books will encourage him to learn as he adores his hardback copies.
Thank you Chris, your latest book arrived today. Jude will be so, so happy, when he reads your special message, and realises that you have signed it, especially for him.
I wish I could have had these books when I was a boy; they would have given me as much pleasure as they do now; and SO much information!
Sir William McAlpine
Theo absolutely adores the books and has a chapter before bed every night. We have all 5 stories, and we read them over and over again! So the new ones will bring such joy.
