"A comprehensive look at the C&O during its years of growth and modernization from the period just after WWII to the B&O affiliation. Based on the 1954 issue of Modern Railroads, the book features a chapter on each significant area of the railroad: freight, passenger, coal, the transition to diesels, shops, yards, leadership, even the advent of computers.
