Description

Ol’ 556 Alaska’s Mighty Steam Engine

by Shannon Cartwright

Beginning in the late 1940’s, steam trains were gradually replaced by new diesel-electric engines. In this dramatic tale, one powerful locomotive, Ol’ 556, comes back to life to save passengers stranded in the Alaska wilderness.

Ol’ 556 celebrates the railroad’s earlier days when courageous men and powerful steam engines battled the elements to keep the line open. Great for kids, train buffs and hobbyists. Bonus features include historic photos of the Alaska Railroad and an inside look at the restoration of 556’s sister engine, No. 557.

11 x 8.5 inches, 48 pages, ages 3 and up.

Available in both soft or hard cover versions. The hard cover has a dust jacket.
