Synopsis: Well-done pictorial history of the C&O's development and use of the H-7 2-8-8-2 steam locomotive. The H-7 served to bridge the gap between the era of the drag-freight and the the modern era of speed and power-at-sped locomotives, proving that a simple articulated locomotive could combine tremendous tractive power with sustained speed while pulling heavy loads. The author describes the H-7's predecessors, the design and construction and the H-7's life on the line, including interviews with the men who ran them. With roster, map, drawings, and technical charts, foldout sheet with schematic diagrams. With oversized foldout schematic diagram of all aspects of the H-7 in a rear pocket. 54 pages.
