Remarks & Notes 
This is for all my other friends who are devotees of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad--swallowed into CSX many years ago, along with my beloved Louisville & Nashville, and a host of other pre-merger lines. Alas, I didn't ride or photograph the C&O as much as I wanted, but what times I did were special treats. On a June afternoon in 1965, I was just about to board C&O train 22, the Louisville section of the "George Washington." I rode this train many times, but never further east than Winchester--where I got off to connect with L&N train 17 to Corbin. The C&O was a class act, though. The Louisville section was always clean inside and out, and the dining car served up some great meals (yes, I tried it out at least a couple of times). Even within sight of L&N's impressive 11-story general office building in Louisville, C&O E8 4018 was a neat looking machine, and wasn't intimidated by the formidable presence of the Old Reliable in its headquarters town. Within 30 minutes I would be on the rear car as we rolled through central Kentucky en route to an appointment at Ashland with the main section of the "George" out of Cincinnati. The C&O, my friends, was a mighty fine railroad.
