Stock #: KB10849
Author: Thomas W. Dixon Jr.
Publisher: Cheasapeake and Ohio Historical Society
This book by noted C&O historian and C&OHS founder T. W. Dixon, Jr., details the whole history of passenger train service on the C&O beginning with the Virginia Central in the 1840s and enduing with Amtrak�s takeover in 1971. Much of the information has never before been published, especially in the earlier period. The history will be most detailed in the period 1920-1971, the era of the heavyweight steel passenger equipment and the lightweight streamlined cars, the heaviest and most powerful steam locomotives, and the iconic E8 diesels. All this is documented and explained in a cogent chronological text supplemented with maps, diagrams, charts, tables, timetable reproductions, ads, menus, as well as photos both from general sources and from the C&O�s own publicity photographers in the 1930-1960s era. Hard cover.
