Chesapeake & Ohio: Life in a Caboose

Much has been written about the technology of the caboose car, but former C&O conductor Cliff Clements tells the story of how it was to work in and around cabooses as a brakeman and conductor. His insights as to the “real” operations of this key element of railroading will be of interest to just about everyone. His first-hand account is a new type of book for C&OHS as it explores the human side of railroading. A section at the back of the book also has good data on C&O’s fleet wooden and steel caboose cars of the era mainly 1940-1986. Excellent photographic coverage.
