As railfans we appreciate historic preservation. Without it much of our beloved railroad equipment wouldn’t be around for us to see again. When Julien contacted me last week about sharing his latest production I agreed. Historic preservation is so important to all of us I wanted to make sure Charlie’s story was shared around. Here’s a bit about what you will see.
As Charlie Sedgley puts it, “the steam locomotive is the closest thing mankind has come to inventing a human being.” In the shadows of Cleveland’s once prosperous steel mills, Charlie and members of the Midwest Railway Preservation Society work persistently to bring historical steam engines and railcars back to life.
This short documentary marks the first installment of a series we would like to produce focusing on the Rust Belt cities. For more information, please visit our site at: rustic.la/rust
Take a look and enjoy Charlie’s story and passion for preservation.
