This color remembrance of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway and The Pere Marquette Railway deals primarily with the motive power, operations and trains of the two companies before 1963. Of course, in June 1947, the C&O merged the Pere Marquette fully into the C&O system, having controlled the Michigan road for years. Nevertheless, Pere Marquette steam power remained lettered for that railroad until retired, with a few exceptions, and much of the diesel power carried its former owner's name until the 1960's, especially some of the yard switchers. After C&O took control of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in early 1963, much of the C&O first generation diesel power was transferred to the power hungry B&O or traded in on new motive power. Therefore, a conscious effort has been made in preparing this book to choose color photographs of C&O diesel power before the B&O merger.
