As the merger scene in the eastern United States heated up in the early 1960s with Erie Lackawanna, N&W-NKP-Wabash, and talk of Penn Central, a union of a different type occurred between the Chesapeake & Ohio and the Baltimore & Ohio. While not yet a true 'merger' for several reasons, the affiliation was dubbed C&O/B&O and quite visible track-side during the 1960s on timetables, advertisements, corporate reports, and especially track-side where C&O and B&O locomotives began mixing it up, especially on the B&O.
