This all-color pictorial covers the western end of the magnificent Chesapeake & Ohio. Coverage begins with the C&O in Michigan on 'The PM District'. Branch lines crisscrossed the state, rare color photography in this Volume covers these mostly abandoned lines.
The Chicago Division was known as the 'Straight Line' which was C&O's direct reach to connect with that great rail center.
The Cincinnati & Russell Division was the might of the C&O. Covered in detail are the challenging operations on the Chevoit Subdivision, the C&O's great climb out of Cincinnati to the west.
Full-color maps illustrate the C&Os routes, and stunning color photography covers the passing of this important eastern road in the early diesel era.
