To this happy place of Railroading, Welcome!

The Steel Wheel on Steel Rail Studio is my workshop for creating information, commentary, and history books on railroading.
Currently in progress are three areas of interest. The three areas are shown above: railroads at Walt Disney World, the former Charleston and Western Carolina Railway of S. Carolina,
and Gilded Age railroad travel and depots in America.
I hope you choose to visit one or more of these areas to further explore these railroading adventures.
