Teen Author Isaac ben Levi is thrilled to hit #1 New Release in ‘Children’s Train Books’ on Kindle! This is book 3 of the Great Railroad Series. Available in paperback and ebook.
As #6200 sits forlornly in a scrapyard in the town of Crestline, Ohio, he thinks back to when he was younger and very much unique. He had been the great hope of the Pennsylvania Railroad when he was built, but due to some problems with his design and the new diesel engines making an appearance, he was now all but redundant.
That is, until one day a diesel engine couples onto him and starts towing him away.
Where is #6200 going? What will be his fate?
See where #6200 ends up and what his new life will be like, as the absorbing tale of the Ozark Mountain Railroad continues its legend of saving old engines from the breakers yard with this engaging and beautifully illustrated story.
Young children and adults alike will be captivated by the thrills and excitement of this fabulous bedtime read.
CUSTOMER REVIEW –
August 29, 2018
Our family liked learning the history of #6200 and his redemption story as part of the Ozark Mountain Rail Road.
As with the previous books of this series, the story line is encouraging, wholesome and positive. I especially love how the characters show examples of thoughtful friendship and loyalty.
The illustrations are a perfect fit. They are a great reference to the actual trains, but also leave room to spur on the readers imagination. The author’s love and expertise of trains is as inspiring as the tale itself.
The history, map, diagrams and glossary make this great family read the perfect platform for unit studies, school projects or additions to curriculum.
