A picture book about an old train station from a bygone era.

The golden age of the railroad may have passed, but its legacy still fascinates us. Based on a song by the acclaimed musician Gordon Titcomb, The Last Train is a beautiful celebration of that bygone era. Titcomb's lyrics are matched by Wendell Minor's handsome, richly-detailed paintings.

ALL ABOARD! "What a gorgeous tribute this is that preserves as it distills for future generations the life of a little railroad station."—Arlo Guthrie
