C&O Railway 1961-1981: The Decades of Change in Color By Thomas W. Dixon, Jr. This book tells the story of the tumultuous years from the beginnings of the B&O affiliation, through Chessie System, then traces the metamorphosis through the giant CSX merger. These decades saw the shift from first generation to third generation diesels and the complete shift in operational methods.
