 Our two heroes build a new locomotive out of scrap.

Introduction page from the book:

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 foundry 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.

Age range 6 to 12 years.
Paperback, 32 pages with 12 watercolour pictures.
