Chesapeake & Ohio Diesel Switchers
By Thomas W. Dixon, Jr, with Karen Parker
This 64-page treatment explains the acquisition of all C&O’s purpose-built switching locomotives. Included are the ALCO S-2 and S-4 models, and the EMD SW1, NW2, S7, SW9 TR3, and TR4 models.
Each model is covered in a separate chapter that explains the design and how C&O used them, as well as a roster and mechanical data. In each case examples of all known painting/lettering styles are illustrated both in black & white and very nice color photos.
Official drawings for painting and lettering styles are included when available.
This is the most complete treatment of C&O diesel switching engines that has ever been done, drawing on all available official sources.
16 pages of full color photos included at the rear of the book as a color album!
