This book covers the Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac Railroad in its last twenty years of "independence" beginning at the startup of Amtrak in 1971 and continuing until the present day under CSX management.
Like previous RF&P books, this one includes images of almost every photogenic location along the 110-mile main line along with the locomotive roster and selected freight car equipment while text provides a brief history of the RF&P prior to 1991 and tries to enumerate all the changes made subsequently by CSX.
In this title you will see pictures of CSX, Family Lines, Seaboard Coast Line, Auto Train and RF&P's own attractive blue and gray locomotives. The last 10 pages of the book serve as an equipment color guide. There are many photographs which include bridges and trestles.
