Freddy and the Freight Train
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Rumble, rumble, clickety-clack was the noise Freddy heard in the distance. Rumble, rumble, clickety-clack. The noise in the distance grew louder until Freddy could see the train across the river heading over the trestle.
 
2     "A train! A train!" shouted five-year-old Freddy.
 
3     Grandma Betty came out to the front lawn to watch the train clickety-clack up the tracks on its way north. Grandma and Freddy waved at the train.
 
4     " The next time the train comes by, we will count the cars," said Grandma.
 
5     "Cars?" asked Freddy. "Can you drive those train cars on our road?"
 
6     "No," laughed Grandma. "Locomotives have steel wheels that fit perfectly on the railroad tracks. Those tracks go all across our country from north to south and east to west."
 
7     "Lo-co-mo-tive? What is a lo-co-mo-tive?" shouted Freddy. The train was going by very fast on the tracks, and the clickety-clack was so loud that both Grandma and Freddy had to shout to hear each other now.
 
8     "Freddy, a locomotive is what we call the machine that moves the train. Some people call it the engine of the train," explained Grandma.
 
9     "If the train follows the tracks, does it need a driver?" Freddy asked.
