Chesapeake & Ohio – James River Line Bridges by Al Kresse
96 pages, softbound, 120+ illustrations
Author Al Kresse who a veteran at bridge history covers all the bridges on the 229-mile James River Line (James River and Rivanna Subdivisions) between Richmond and Clifton Forge in good detail, both old and new. Original engineering drawings as well as many photos illustrate the evolution of bridge design on the old Richmond & Alleghany RR (before 1889) and C&O after 1889. This was always an important C&O line for shipment of coal to Newport News avoiding the grades of the Mountain Subdivision east of Clifton Forge.
