“America is a land of wonders,” famed French visitor Alexis de Tocqueville wrote in 1835, “in which everything is in constant motion.” Railroads have been a prime means of seeing those wonders since well before 1869, when the link-up of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific lines initiated the era of coast-to-coast train service.
The twenty posters in this coloring book, works of art as well as advertisements, celebrate the romance involved in exploring America’s seashores, deserts, plains, and mountains by rail. They are shown as small pictures on the inside front and back covers. When you color the line drawings, you could choose to copy the originals or you might prefer to create your own color combinations. We’ve left the last pages of this coloring book blank so that you can draw and color pictures of your own. Will they feature trains traveling through cities and picturesque countrysides or will they be images wholly from your imagination?
Soft cover book with staple binding. 48 pages with 22 images to color. Coloring pages are blank on the back so they can be cut out and displayed.
