He and his best friend, Tom, spent hours exploring the riverbank together, or hunting for buried treasure in the woods nearby. When Eddie's father, an engineer with the Camden and Amboy Railroad, is chosen to make the new run west out of Philadelphia, Eddie must move to a new home in Pittsburgh at the end of the line. But his sadness at leaving old friends and familiar places is soon eased by his pride in his father and the adventure of the first train ride across Pennsylvania. A touching story during the exciting days of the early railroads. We gift wrap every book at no charge and place dust wrappers in new mylar whenever possible. Book images available, just ask.
