Railtown Historic Park

Travel correspondent Tom Wilmer takes us to Railtown State Historic Park in Tuolumne County -- home to one of America's last operational railroad roundhouses, plus steam engines, diesel electrics, and scenic railway journeys through the Sierra foothills.

Tom Wilmer produces on-air content for Issues & Ideas airing over KCBX and is producer and host of the six-time Lowell Thomas award-winning NPR podcast Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilmer. Recorded live on-location across America and around the world, the podcasts feature the arts, culture, music, nature, history, science, wine & spirits, brewpubs, and the culinary arts--everything from baseball to exploring South Pacific atolls to interviewing the real Santa Claus in the Arctic.
