C&O Railway History Series

The C&O Historical Society has undertaken an exciting publications project called Chesapeake & Ohio History Series Books. This series will consist of a book issued every quarter. Each book will treat an aspect of C&O history, equipment, structures, etc., more extensively than we could provide in our C&O magazine. Topics for these books may be continuations or expansions of magazine articles, or entirely new subjects not covered before.
