by Elisha Cooper

A night train, a freight train, a high-speed train. Racing across the country, from coast to coast. All aboard!

Climb aboard a red-striped Commuter Train in the East. Switch to a blue Passenger Train rolling through midwestern farmland. Then hop on a Freight Train, soar over mountains on an Overnight Train, and finish on a High-Speed Train as it races to the West Coast.

Trains are moving. Fast and loud, colorful and powerful. Experience their sights, sounds, smells, and the engineers and conductors who make them go, as they roll across the country.
