model jets— the boxcar’s made to safely haul almost anything at all! The hopper’s top is open wide, so cargo can be poured inside. The crew hops to it, one and all— they get to work and have a ball!

The well cars carry giant beasts munching on enormous feasts. Brachiosaurus likes the view, while T-rex gets a bone to chew. The flatbed cars are rolling beds. The weary crew can rest their heads, and settle in, and tuck in tight. Their work is finished for tonight. The red caboose is last in line— from the lookout, all looks fine. The freight and crew are tucked away. The next stop…is another day. A hiss, a jolt, a shift and sway, now the journey’s underway. The

train’s departing, car by car. The headlight fades into the stars. Puffing, chuffing out of sight… Steam train, dream train… chhhhhh…goodnight. SHERRI DUSKEY RINKER lives in Chicago with her photographer husband and two energetic, inquisitive sons: one fascinated by bugs and magic, and the other by trucks and trains. She’s constantly inspired—and often exhausted. She created this goodnight story in hopes of happier bedtimes and sweet dreams for all. Find out more about Sherri at
