C&O 2-6-6-2 Mallet Locomotives
By Karen Parker
This is about the history of the Chesapeake and Ohio's 2-6-6-2 Mallet locomotives in classes H-1 through H-6. In the Age of Steam these locomotives evolved from being the railroad's premier heavy freight locomotive to being the road's primary locomotive for the numerous mine shifters needed to pick up coal from a multitude of mines. If there was any non-superpower locomotives that was synonymous with C&O Steam Power, it was the 2-6-6-2. 96 pages, B&W, Softcover.

C&O Allegheny 2-6-6-6 Loco A Retrospective
By Karen Parker & TW. Dixon, Jr
The H-8 class Allegheny was C&O’s ultimate Super Power locomotive and has been treated in countless articles and books, however, nothing has been in print on this important locomotive for 20 years. This new book contains material originally researched by Gene Huddleston and many other prominent locomotive and C&O historians. Additional material has been added and the resulting text gives the reader a complete and thorough understanding of this iconic C&O engine. Over 100 photographs include many which have never been published in any venue before. Also included are drawings and tables which help tell the story of the fabulous years from 1942 to 1956 when these giants were the backbone of C&O’s motive power fleet. 128 pages, Hardcover.

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 Railway 1961-1981 The Decades of Change In Color
By T.W. Dixon, Jr.
This new book tells the story of the tumultuous years from the beginnings of the B&O affiliation, through Chessie System, up to CSX. These decades saw the shift from first generation to third generation diesels, and the complete shift in operational methods. It begins with an overview of the railroad situation in 1960 and how C&O fit into it, as well as a description of the B&O affiliation. It traces the metamorphosis from the 5,100-mile C&O of 1960 up to the beginnings of the giant CSX merger.
The story is told in high-quality color photos, as well as maps, drawings, and other illustrations that help to tell the complete story of the changes wrought over this 20 year period.
This is an era remembered by many COHS members today who were active railfans and modelers in this very era.
The period was marked by the decline and end of passenger service and the tectonic shifts in transportation routes as interstate highways took an ever increasing toll on railroad traffic and revenues. It traces the beginnings of a resurgence that would find full-flower in the 1980s. 140 pages, Color, Hardcover.

C&O Railway Series #9, C&O Mountain Type Locomotives
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. 64 pages, Softcover.

C&O Railway Series #19, C&O Cranes
By William C. Stone
This book covers all the C&O's wreck cranes, and other styles used in general operations in the 20th century. These cranes range in size from 60-tons to the giant 250-ton lift capacity. Many photos and diagrams/drawings not only document C&O's fleet of cranes, but also illustrate the technology of the crane as a piece of railroad equipment, showing how they were built and how they were used. All the nomenclature pertinent to cranes as a type, and for those used by C&O is covered. This book should give the modeler what is needed to adapt off-the-shelf models to C&O prototypes right down to accurate decals to letter them. Cranes have seldom been covered in our magazine. That is now corrected by this comprehensive history. 79 pages, B&W, Softcover.

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.

California's Locomotives Alco & GE Shortlines & Industrial Locos V. 2
By Joseph A. Strapac
Volume II continues the theme of the first volume, though it's now organized around standard and custom models of two manufacturers, ALCO and General Electric. As the steam locomotives were retired many of the same short lines moved on to diesels. Readers will find this volume packed with material on these interesting new diesel locomotives, including many rare views that have seldom been seen before. Chapters in Volume II address the different Alco models (S-1, S-2, S-4, S-6 and various road units) sold to customers in California. Then the major GE models are covered in their respective chapters: 25 ton, 44 ton, 70 ton and various non-standard designs—as well as two significant fleets of large road locomotives that worked for years in California but were never in common carrier service. Roster portrait photos predominate, supplemented by numerous action views, including full-page photographs. Subsequent volumes, now in preparation, will examine the California-based products of Baldwin, Electro-Motive, the various minority builders and locomotives used by the military in California.

Chicago & North Western Peninsula Division
By James E. Lewnard

For over one hundred and twenty years (the) North Western hauled iron ore from the Marquette and Menominee Iron Ranges to the docks at Escanaba, Michigan for transloading into ore boats.

This book combines a carefully researched history of the railroad’s facilities, equipment, and operations with over 300 black and white and color photographs of trains, stations, and servicing facilities. Detailed photo captions explain the operation of the railroad from Green Bay through Escanaba to Ishpeming, and from Powers through Iron Mountain to Watersmeet, with a special focus on the Escanaba ore docks, industries and mines served in on-line communities, and the operation of passenger trains. 160 pages, 300+ Photos, Color and B&W, Hardcover.

Chicago America’s Railroad Capital; The Illustrated History 1836 to Today
By Brian Solomon
The first illustrated history of the people, machines, facilities, and operations that made Chicago the hub around which an entire continent's rail industry still revolves. In the mid-nineteenth century, Chicago's central location in the expanding nation helped establish it as the capital of the still-new North American railroad industry. As the United States expanded westward, new railroads and rail-related companies like Pullman established their headquarters in the Windy City, while eastern railroads found their natural western terminals there. Historically, railroads that tried to avoid Chicago failed. While the railroad industry has undergone dramatic changes over the course of its existence, little has changed regarding Chicago's status as the nation's railroad hub. In Chicago: America's Railroad Capital, longtime, prolific railroading author and photographer Brian Solomon - joined by a cast of respected rail journalists - examines this sprawling legacy of nearly 180 years, not only showing how the railroad has spurred the city's growth, but also highlighting the city's railroad workers throughout history, key players in the city and the industry, and Chicago's great interurban lines, fabulous passenger terminals, vast freight-processing facilities, and complex modern operations. Illustrated with historical and modern photography and specially commissioned maps, Chicago: America's Railroad Capital also helps readers understand how Chicago has operated - and continues to operate - as the center of a nationwide industry that is an essential cog in the country's commerce. 192 pages, Color & B&W, 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.

Classic Railroad Signals; Semaphores, Searchlighs and Towers
By Brian Solomon
Explore the history, quirks and stories behind signals with gorgeous period and contemprary photography. Railroad signals are the link between the steam era and modern railroading. Designed for reliability and durability, signals can survive for decades. In fact, old semaphores installed during the early years of the 20th century were still in service during the 1990s, protecting trains that were running with the latest modern diesels. Even searchlight-style signals that were the epitome of 1940s railroading continue to work today. Though standards were introduced in the early 20th century, interpretation varied greatly among railroads, so even major railroads have individualized signals. Some, such as the Pennsylvania Railroad, were noted for their distinctive signaling hardware. Others lines became known for their peculiarities in practice. Classic Railroad Signals examines how different railroads developed specific hardware to serve their unique needs, in the process tracing the lineage of various types of hardware and highlighting how and where they were used. From 19th-century mechanical signals to disc signals, upper- and lower-quadrant semaphores, three-light electric signals, searchlight-style targets, positional lights, and color-position light hardware, author Brian Solomon covers nearly every conceivable piece of North American signaling hardware, even the virtually extinct wig wag that was once standard in California and Wisconsin. 160 pages, Color & B&W, Hardcover.
