By Thomas W. Dixon, Jr. This C&O book, which is the sixth in a series consolidates in one place the major elements of data about the Electro-Motive Division (EMD) E7 & E8 model diesel passenger locomotives used by the C&O Railway during the period 1946-1971. The Pere Marquette Railway received the first E7s trains in October 1946. These were followed by more E7s purchased under C&O management in 1947. When previously steam-oriented C&O decided to dieselize its passenger trains in 1951-1953, it purchased a fleet of 31 E8s. Sadly, none of these locomotives survived. Softcover. 80 pages of which 27 are color.
