Wenn man einen stromlinienförmigen ICE vorbeibrausen sieht, kann man sich kaum vorstellen, dass die ersten Eisenbahnen aus simplen Holzgleisen und Wagen bestanden, die von Pferden gezogen wurden. Die ersten Dampfeisenbahnen wurden zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts eröffnet und beförderten Fahrgäste und Güter so schnell wie nie zuvor. Was ist eine Eisenbahn und wie funktioniert sie? Wie fahren Züge ohne Lokführer? Wie schnell kann eine Magnetschwebebahn fahren? Auf diese und viele weitere Fragen bekommen wissbegierige Kinder in Band 19 der grossen neuen Wissensreihe memo Antworten. Spektakuläre Bilder von den ersten Dampflokomotiven, Luxuszügen und modernen Hochgeschwindigkeitsbahnen kombiniert mit gut gegliederten, kurzen Texten machen die Thematik für Kinder leicht verständlich. Auch schwierigere Sachverhalte werden so begreifbar. Rubriken wie "Erstaunliche Fakten", "Fragen und Antworten" und "Rekordverdächtig" sowie ein umfangreiches Glossar wiederholen das vorher vermittelte Wissen und geben noch einmal einen Überblick über die Thematik. Ideal auch für Referate und Schulprojekte
