A book for children aged 5 -7 years learning to read. It tells the story of Chris and Ken the footplate men, driving and firing a steam train and a wriggly wiggly snake.
It also contains a second story about nearly hitting a crossing gate and stopping just in time.
The book is written in rhyming couplets which accompany bright bold pictures.
It is a story for Grandads to read to their grandchildren and to tell them about the time when they themselves were young, about the sights and sounds of their childhood.
Along with Ken Issitt we gave talks to a variety of groups in Leicestershire, WI's, U3A, local history groups, steam enthusiasts etc under the name of Chris and Ken the Railway Men.
