C&O Railway Series #26: C&O 2-10-2 Santa Fe Type Steam Locomotives
These locomotives operated by C&O are among the least known and seldom written
about motive power. The B-1, 2, 3, 4 classes were all inherited or purchased second hand.
They operated mainly east of Charlottesville, Va. until the end of steam. Story of C&O’s floating
operations on the Ohio River from the steamboat era of 1873 through the ferries
that continued to operate into the 1950s. An unusual railwayfunction never fully covered before.
