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

"Based on musician Titcomb's 2005 song, this stunning book both celebrates and eulogizes the golden era of railway travel. Minor's luminous, occasionally almost photographic, paintings portray the adult narrator as a boy, surrounded by a ghostly haze as he walks along the tracks....There's little doubt that railroad aficionados will pore over the crisply rendered railroad memorabilia." --Starred, Publishers Weekly
