The Chessie System was one of the most colorful railroads of the 1970s and 1980s and the easternmost lines of the Baltimore & Ohio were among its most photogenic and busy. This volume features B&O lines from Philadelphia and Baltimore to Grafton, WV and Connellsville, PA. Along the way, such scenic locations as the Thomas Viaduct, Point of Rocks, Harper's Ferry, Sand Patch grade, and the grades of the West End are all featured, as well as operations in and around Baltimore, the District of Columbia, and Cumberland. Locomotives in Chessie colors as well as the three predecessor roads, B&O, C&O, and Western Maryland are portrayed in action.
