Product Information

After World War II concluded, the Chesapeake & Ohio's charismatic chairman, Robert R. Young, embarked on an ambitious plan to overhaul its passenger service and invested heavily in new and sometimes exotic equipment. His plans didn't pan out as he envisioned and he departed in 1954, but C&O remained determined to offer service that would be considered the best. Follow the postwar development of this service and its decline through the color images as detailed by passenger train authority Geoffrey Doughty.
