Virginia Railroads Vol 2

Chesapeake & Ohio

 

By Thomas Dixon Jr.

Color laminated hardcover, 8.5x11", 128 glossy pages, b/w photos throughout. 2011.

"This 2nd volume in the series of books about railroading in Virginia details the history of the C&O railway from its inception as the Louisa Railroad in central Virginia in 1836 through modern times.

"Each chapter explains how a subdivision of the railway developed, including the types of locomotives used, the nature of the traffic carried, and geographical considerations. The many photographs are mostly from the 1930-1960 time period. Maps and track plans add to the rich illustrative treatment, making this a gazetteer of the line."
