C&O/Prince Embroidered logo Polo - River Blue Navy
Following World War II, C&O Railway Chairman Robert Young envisioned a revitalized passenger service along Chessie's famed railroad, including new passenger equipment, reconstructed passenger stations, and a new train called The Chessie. While several new stations were designed in the art modern style, and three train sets comprising The Chessie were built, the only permanent fixture of Robert Young's post-war dream was the new passenger station at Prince, West Virginia, a single beacon of the future he envisioned within the wilderness of the New River Gorge.
Painstakingly created by digital artist Ken Miller, and now used for the first time outside of the C&OHS magazine, the iconic C&O Railway iconography used by the railroad solely on the 1946 Prince passenger station is available on this wonderful Polo. Unique to this lone station, still standing today and served by Amtrak's Cardinal, the one-of-a-kind C&O logo adorns the street side of the structure, and the famed red type spelling PRINCE can still be viewed trainside as it was meant to be from Robert Young's new fleet of passenger trains that he dreamed would keep the American passenger on the rails for decades to come.
