"My C&O is an informative, scenic narration of the transition of Chesapeake & Ohio Railway into CSX Transportation. The book covers present day operations and delves into the entrepreneurial and geographic reasons that underlie the location and development of Chesapeake & Ohio.

Part 1: From River To Lake: Tour C&O's land bridge from Ohio River to Lake Erie, still an essential thoroughfare for coal and freight.

Part 2: Along the Wide Ohio: Follow the river-running Cincinnati extension of C&O, which continues today as a secondary route.

Part 3: Across the Mountain State: Survey the development of C&O operations in West Virginia, where coal still flows via CSX."
