This is second in a series of books on the railroads in West Virginia. The first volume, published November, 2009 gives an overview of all roadroads in the state, while this volume deals exclusively with the C&O. The era is mid-20th Century (1935-1965) and the story is told not only with the words and photos but with many maps and drawings that show how C&O's lines in W. Virginia really worked and how they comprised the key element of the seven state C&O system. This is very much a reference book and Gazetteer, and publishes information lacking from the several previous books on various aspects of this subject. Subsequent volumes will deal with other individual railroads with West Virginia.
