Chessie System by Thomas W Dixon, Jr Thomas W

This book is an album of 135 full color photos depicting trains operating exclusively in West Virginia on the Chesapeake & Ohio, Baltimore & Ohio, and Western Maryland railroads during the era when they were part of the combine's Chessie System.

Most photos range from 1972 to the late 1980s and show heavy trains powered by multiple locomotives hauling the black diamonds that were so much a part of these railroads character.

The bright yellow/blue/vermilion paint scheme was always attractive to employees, railfans, modelers, and the public, and is fondly remembered.

In addition to many interesting trains and operational situations, the beautiful rugged scenery of West Virginia is featured in clear, bright color photos taken by Everett N. Young, E. Roy Ward, Aruthur E. House, James Moseley, E. Sterling Hanger, Jr. and Thomas W. Dixon, Jr.
