"This book brings together great SCL photos and text to form a cohesive history of this important system that combined tow of the greatest Southeastern railroads (SAL and ACL) and set the stage for the merger with Chessie System that resulted in today’s CSX in 1986.

"Here's the story of this modern giant as it reorganized and consolidated the facilities and operations of Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard Air Line , followed later by Louisville & Nashville and Clinchfield railroads, finally joining Chessie to form CSX. Much material on SCL’s high-class passenger service that was operated at a very high level long after many other railroads had given up.

"Bill Griffin, a veteran railroad writer and CSX retiree, was a long-time official of Richmond Fredericksburg & Potomac. Griffin’s previous titles available here are: The Atlantic and Danville Railway Co. the Railroad of Southside Virginia, Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Passenger Service 1935 - 1975, and Virginia Railroads Vol 1: Railroading in the Old Dominion."
