Roger the Little Red Engine
Roger is one of the old fashioned steam engines who were very popular in Britain around the 1960’s, he was powered by steam, and the fuel used to fire his boiler was coal.He had lain in a yard for many years; people had no more use for a steam engine now that diesel and electric trains were all the rage. Roger believed that he would soon be melted down for scrap, but two old business men and hundreds of railway enthusiasts had him brought back to his original condition, along with an old friend, and together they were able to bring enjoyment to many boys and girls, as well as adults
It is a very important part of the history of not only this country, but of the world, that a few people who are wealthy enough, can recapture the nostalgia of those far off days, and run a private railway run by an old steam train restored to his former glory.
I hope you are fortunate enough to enjoy the experience.
This book was written for boys and girls of 4 to 7 who enjoy a nice story before sleep.
This is the very latest version, now much larger than the original book.
