Keith Corman’s “Katie and Kenny Tour the Railroad” is an educationally engaging book for both kids and parents alike

This light-hearted kid’s book teaches children the value of railroad safety in an entertainingly educational fashion- one that’s sure to impart useful life-wisdom on them.


“Corman has brought to us a much-needed safety book on the inner workings at a railroad yard and the safety needed to ensure maximum productivity and health.”

Katie and Kenny, along with their father, are taken on a tour of the local railroad yard by an engineer with the railroad. The basis of the book is to introduce children to the role railroads play in our lives, their importance, and to stress safety around railroads and their equipment: “NO PLAYGROUND!”
Katie and Kenny Cat along with their dad are excited to take a tour of the railroad yard! With engineer Timothy Tabby, they get ready to start their tour and first learn about the safety involved. “Safety first!” is the motto of the story. At the beginning of the book, the kids learn they must wear hard hats and safety goggles for their protection. On the tour, they appropriately learn first about the engine and its intricate. equipment. From there, they go to the control tower and learn how the operator controls the cars on the tracks to sort them into other trains.  Afterwards, they go to the containers and learn how almost everything we use will have come from a container on a train, having traveled long distances to get to us.
It’s now starting to get late, so the kids, their dad, and Timothy hitch a ride with a fellow worker to get them back to the office. Along the way, they crossed over several railroad crossings; each time the vehicle was sure to stop and check for an oncoming train. At the last crossing, the lights were on and the crossing gates were down, so they had to stop and wait until the train had passed, then they looked both ways again and made it to the office. Throughout the tour, Katie and Kenny learned a lot about trains and the whole operation involved to run them properly, efficiently, and safely.
