"Mountain Engines" is a book with four stories by the Reverend Wilbert Vere Awdry. The Stories are about 8 engines (1-Godred, 2-Ernest, 3-Wilfred, 4-Culdee, 5-Shane Dooiney, 6-Lord Harry/Patrick, 7-Alaric, 8-Eric) who live on a tourist Mountain Railway which runs from the bottom of Mt. Culdee Fell to the Top of Mt. Culdee Fell. The Stories are mainly about Culdee and Patrick. The First story, "Mountain Engine," is about when Culdee comes back from Crovan's Gate for repairs. She is dropped off by Donald by the Skarloey Railway Engines' shed and she starts to tell the engines about the Mountain Railway. The Second Story, Bad Look-Out, is about when Skarloey and Rheneas help Culdee to tell Sir Handel a scary story to make him behave... The Third Story, Danger Points, is about when Donald brings Culdee back to her own Railway. A New Engine (No. 6) had arrived when she was gone, and he us VERY cocky, which gets him into a small accident... The Fourth and Last story, '"Devil's Back,"' is about when Lord Harry comes out of the shed and shows that he can be a really useful engine, and has learned that it is stupid to take risks just for the sake of showing off!
This is a very interesting book about a different kind of railway, and I think any train fan would enjoy it.
NOTE: No. 5-Shane Dooiney does not appear in the books at all because he is away being mended. This takes one star off the book.
