The Chesapeake & Ohio Railway

West End: PM District, Chicago Division, Cincinnati & Russell Division

By Kevin EuDaly & Eugene Huddleston.

12x9" Horizontal format, Cloth with Dust Jacket, 112 pages, Color throughout.

"The Chesapeake & Ohio, West End: PM District, Chicago Division, Cincinnati & Russell Division covers the western end of the magnificent C&O, and begins with the C&O in Michigan, whose presence there began with the absorption of the Pere Marquette in 1947.

"The Chicago Division was C&O’s attempt to access the markets of Chicago — America’s rail capitol, an attempt which came to fruition with an impressive array of manifest and coal traffic.

"The Cincinnati and Russell Division was the might and power of the C&O. Covered in detail are the challenging operations on the Cheviot Subdivision, the C&O’s great climb out of Cincinnati to the west. The Northern Subdivision provided an important outlet for coal moving to the Great Lakes at Toledo.

"Full-color maps illustrate the C&O’s routes, and stunning color photography covers the passing of this important eastern road in the early diesel era."
