Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0939487519, Hardcover)

This second volume in a series of books about railroading in Virginia details the history of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway from its inception as the Louisa Railroad in central Virginia in 1836 up to modern times.   Each chapter explains how a subdivision of the railway developed, including the types of locomotive used, the nature of the traffic carried, and geographical considerations.  The many photographs are mostly from the 1930-1960 era.  Maps and track plans add to the rich illustrative treatment, making this a gazetteer of the line.
