Railfan & Railroad
SEPTEMBER 2016: Ben Klutzer takes us trackside to China's few remaining steam-powered industrial railroads for what could be the last big steam show in the world. We explore downtown Dallas with Steve Schmollinger, and Mike Roque updates us on volunteer efforts to keep the old SP Placerville Branch open. All this and more in the September issue of Railfan & Railroad!
