C&O Coal Tipples
By Tom Dixon, Jr
This book describes the cycle of coal from the mine head, through the preparation plant, commonly called the tipple, and into the railway cars. It shows how coal was handled within the tipple so as to separate it by size and composition and how it was placed in hopper cars on the C&O for transportation to market. As far as we know, this is the first simple explanation of the coal preparation process and how it interfaced with the railway. Detailed descriptions of the tipple and its machinery, of the grades and types of coal, and the various styles of tipples. Material includes photographs and drawings of tipples from large to small, processing from four or five car loads a month to 3,000 cars per month. The modeler will find photographs of tipple buildings of all descriptions, from wooden frame to corrugated steel siding. This book should be of great benefit to modelers interested in C&O operations, and to those interested in coal country and the whole process of coal mining and sale. Most photographs come from the early-mid-1950s, an era popular to many modelers. 80 pages, Softcover.

C&O Mountain Type Locomotives; The C&O Railway History Series #9
By Karen Parker
The C&O originated the 4-8-2 wheel arrangement steam locomotive in 1911, which it named “Mountain Type” in recognition of the locomotives’ intended use on heavy passenger trains over the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia.  The 4-8-2 soon became a very popular and valuable locomotive for American railroads with over 2,400 built up to about 1930. Some roads used them for both passenger and freight service, but on C&O they were mainly passenger engines, with only occasional freight usage.  The Mountains were captive to the Charlottesville, Virginia – Hinton, West Virginia runs with heavy passenger trains, and were the most powerful locomotives available until the arrival of the 4-8-4 Greenbriers in 1935.  They also saw service in later days on the Louisville sections of the name trains, and some were used in freight service in Indiana.  It is interesting that C&O conceived and built the first Mountains, but had only 10 locomotives out of over two thousand built in the U. S.  This book tells the whole story of these versatile locomotives that were the progenitors of such an important part of the American steam locomotive fleet. 128 pages, Solftcover.

It gives background about these facilities and how they operated, then shows the two major styles used by C&O: cylindrical, and box or rectangular, as well as some odd styles that the company installed. It should be particularly interesting for modelers and some drawings used in erection of these structures in the 1915-1930 era are included for that purpose. Soft Cover, 64 glossy pages

C&O/B&O in Color
By Bob Withers
As the merger scene in the eastern United States heated up in the early 1960s with Erie Lackawanna, N&W-NKP-Wabash, and talk of Penn Central, a union of a different type occurred between the Chesapeake& Ohio and the Baltimore & Ohio. While not yet a true “merger” for several reasons, the affiliation was dubbed “C&O/B&O” and quite visible trackside during the 1960s on timetables, advertisements, corporate reports, and especially trackside where C&O and B&O locomotives began mixing it up, especially on the B&O. 128 pages, Hardcover.

    Chicago & Northwestern The 400 Club; A History of the Presidential F Units
    By Bruce C. Nelson
    This book details the story of five Chicago & North Western Railway F7 diesel units that saw a wide variety of uses over 40 years of service. Purchased as freight units intended primarily to replace steam power, they were ultimately selected for the prestigious assignment of pulling the C&NW's business cars. Supporters soon nicknamed the units "Presidential Fs" in recognition of their lofty status. Another name bestowed on them was "the 400 Club," stemming from their renumbering to the 400 series in honor of the historic C&NW streamliner known as the "400." Author Bruce Nelson takes a chronological look at the history of these units, including mechanical details, operational assignments, stories from C&NW employees, and the units' ultimate disposition following retirement in 1989. Softcover, 88 pages, 95 Color and B&W photos.
