This book consolidates in one place the major elements of data about the Electro-Motive Divison (EMD) E7 & E8 model diesel passenger locomotives used by the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway during the period 1946-1971.  The Pere Marquette Railway received the first E7s to power its new streamlined Pere Marquette trains in October 1946.  These were followed by more E7s purchased under C&O management after the merger of the lines in June 1947.  When previously steam-oriented C&O decided to dieselize its passenger trains in 1951-53, it purchased a fleet of (31) E8s.  The ex-PM E7s were eventually transferred to B&O and E8s ran all of C&O's service until 1971.  None of these locomotives survives.
