    Check this out. I took this photo about 4:30 this morning with the train moving. I used the flash to stop the action but you can still see some of the light from the headlights shining ahead of the loco.

    Those two black and white ones were past down to me from the family. Those we're before my pic taking days too:mrgreen: But I did take these.

    A Blue B&O and C&O on the Chessie(old PM line) at Porter Junction in Chesterton IN, probably winter 84. The semaphore was working then, but is gone now:cry:

    The C&O was my first love, especialy the 50's and 60's:thumb::thumb:

    Jim & Charlie, I think we could be good friends. The C&O was a class 1 RR that has been overlooked by every one. including model manufacturers until last few years. All I have photos of in my coputer is models. I have a few that I need to scan when I get a chance. So for now you will have to settle for model pics
    heris one I posted long ago

    oh I found an interesting one here.Look closely at the bottom of the building
    and one more

    C&O steam equipment is seriously under represented.:cry: Sure, Rivarossi has a nice Allegheny, Bachmann a nice Mountain, and Proto a nice Kanawha, but where are the L2 Hudsons, F17 Pacifics, A16 Atlantics, J3a Greenbriers, and other beautiful C&O passenger power? :confused: Not to mention, a billion people make 2-8-0's but no one makes a C&O 2-8-0!

    oh that is an ex Conrail in the heart of C&O coal country. That yard at one time put out 28 coal trains a day. Think about it that would be 28 empties coming in also.those trains would be up to 200 cars each. My grand father was a telegraph operator on that division. Man could he tell some stories. I remember as a child my father would shut off the car when caught at crossing by coal drags. they were very slow maybe 15 mph.
