San Angelo’s Wheeler Dealer is BACK at the Railway Museum

Step into history with the true tale of how San Angelo got its depot in “Arthur Stilwell’s Dream of Steam.” After successfully selling out most performances last year, the historic play returns to the Railway Museum of San Angelo March 23-26.

Guests will enjoy champagne and hors d’oeuvres in a 19010 scene straight out of Arthur Stilwell’s historic dream of a mighty railroad through San Angelo and into Mexico. They’ll also get a copy of the actual historic stock certificate and meet Pancho Villa, whose words about the Mexican Revolution are based on extensive research.

The actors for “Arthur Stilwell’s Dream of Steam” are all local and will be dressed in the styles of 1910.
