The Blue Ridge Stemwinder, or the "Stemwinder" as it is more commonly known, is the journal created for members of the East Tennessee & Western North Carolina Railroad Historical Society by Society founder John R. Waite in 1988.

John and I, with the help of contributors, produced this journal over a span of 20 years, 1988-2007. The Stemwinder contains excellent stories, never-before-seen photos, detailed railroad maps, scale drawings of railroad equipment and structures, reproductions of historical railroad documents, and news about anything associated with the ET&WNC Railroad, the Historical Society and its members.

The 62 issues of the Stemwinder in this Collection have been converted to PDF files. The majority of the issues, where all that remains are the printed journals, have been meticulously scanned to provide the best balance between legibility and photo quality, with photo quality being paramount. Where available, the original electronic files have been used to make the highest quality PDF files possible.
