ABOUT THE BOOK:   IN THE YEARS that the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway published this book for the benefit of its customers, it probably had little idea that railroad enthusiasts would someday be clamoring for information on the equipment illustrated therein. But now, over forty years later, most of the freight cars in this book have been retired from revenue service, making it an attractive reference for historians and modelers.
To enhance the book's value to these people, we have added information concerning these cars that was not included in the original book. Carl Shaver, the C&O Historical Society's associate editor in areas of motive power and rolling stock, has researched each group of cars illustrated in this book, and provided material about their construction, rebuildings, previous and subsequent owners, and anything else that might be of interest to historians and modelers of the C&O, or of freight cars in general.
Information is also provided on other matters of general interest: the definitions of the Association of American Railroads' mechanical designations, which the C&O used to classify its cars; plus backgrounds on certain car features and designs.
The two sections at the rear of the book describe other equipment owned by the C&O as of mid-1937, which was not included in the original book. With these additions, a virtually complete study of C&O freight cars and cabooses of that era is possible.
Although most of the cars pictured here are no longer in revenue service, many of them are still active on the C&O today in the form of non-revenue equipment.
This book, we believe, is the most thorough documentation of one railroad's freight car fleet of a given date. We hope that some of the enthusiasm that went into the preparation of this book will be shared by you, the readers.
