C&O Steam Local Passenger Service 2020 Calendar
This year we have started to change the subject of our annual large 12x12-inch C&O calendar. Instead of just steam, we will concentrate on great photos of various service types, starting with Local Passenger Trains. This year features 13 large and free small images of C&O main line and branch line local passenger trains. These work-a-day trains made all the stops and filled in the transportation needs for people who didn’t have ready access to the name trains with their more limited schedule of stops. Locals operating on the main line as well as branches in the 1930-1970 era are featured. Included are steam, gas-electric motor car, and diesel motive power. Most locals were gone by 1950, but a few lasted to 1958, and one to 1963. This calendar has images of the trains that “everyone knew” in the last great era of the American passenger train and of this service on the C&O.
