Paper Railroad Wheels

For an odd bit of rail history: Paper cored rail wheels! Apparently they worked and offered a smoother ride than pure steel for passenger rail.

If that’s not enough train fix, there’s always Railroad Extra - Index page for your next few weeks of reading. :wink:

Why do you do this to us. WHY?! I swear, you’re worse than a random Wikipedia brainhole. Fortunately I stopped myself in time before losing the next 3 hours to that Railroad Extra. Nice info though, thanks :slight_smile:

Just in time, eh? A common trope!

(I regret nothing!)
