Everybody Loves Chessie 2019 Calendar
This is the 85th edition of the Chessie calendar. Yes, the cuddly little kitten is 85 this year. We pay her tribute through a selection of great calendar and advertising art 1934-1958. The Chessie calendar is the longest-running railroad-themed calendar--reaching its peak distribution with 425,000 copies in 1947. The Wall Street Journal in that era called her "the kitten of destiny." Chessie herself became so associated with the C&O that it was/is often called "Chessie." In fact, C&O/B&O renamed itself Chessie System, as we all know. Help us celebrate Chessie's 85th, and get her tribute calendar this year. It is a truism that "Everybody loves Chessie!"
