West Virginia Railroads

Vol. 3: Baltimore and Ohio

By Bob Withers.

Color laminated hardcover, 8.5x11, 128 glossy pages, photos throughout. 2011.

"This is the third of the west Virginia railroads series, delaing with one of the state's major railroads: the B&O. Extended to what is now Harper's Ferry in 1837, its lines had reached Wheeling by 1852 and Parkersburg in 1857. Eventually northern and central WVA was webbed with B&O lines into its coal fields, and coal proves to be the mainstay of the B&O and successors in the state to this day.

"Many photos of the late steam and early diesel 'transition' era are to be found here, as well as maps and a summary history."
