Hardcover, 8.5 x 11, 208 pages, 220 photographs, 130 drawings. Encyclopedic treatment. Diagrams and builder photos of every class along with roster data, retirement dates, paint schemes, special appliances, service history, and statistics on every one of the C&O hoppers and gondolas, as well as background on C&O coal service. C&O Freight Cars is the first volume in a series on the Railway's freight cars in the period 1937 to 1965. It covers the most common types of the hoppers and the gondolas that were used by the C&O. As the C&O was primarily a coal hauler, these cars represented the bulk of its freight operations. Each car class is fully illustrated with both builder and in-service photographs and is accompanied by a dimensioned drawing and complete statistical data, build/rebuild dates, dispositions, etc. Information on paint schemes and similar material of interest to modelers is discussed, as well as C&O's innovative design changes.
