This news is very significant when it comes to preserving C&O Railroad photo history! Couple the recent announcement of the major personal collection of C&O photos belonging to Tom Dixon with this donation of additional C&O photos from the massive J. David Ingles collection, I venture to say that there's no other place that you can find this collection of archival C&O photos to choose from!
Thanks to the generosity of all that were involved in assembling this impressive collection! From what I read I appears that more of David's photos will be donated to other railroad historical groups! Hopefully that means that the N&WHS will receive a donation.

Historical E-Journal

Volume 1, No. 2 - September 10, 2021

*This is a combined issue of our Electronic Journal and our normal Friday email News and Notes.*

This is our second issue of the new C&OHS Electronic Historical Journal. In this issue we feature some color photos from the great new collection just donated to us by the estate of the late J. David Ingles.

This is also the first installment of the Modeler’s Corner, by our C&OHS Model Editor/Coordinator Rick Gartrell, detailing how he used one of the small drawings in the collection to create an accurate model of the C&O coal house at Ansted, W. Va.

The juxtaposition of history and modeling in the C&OHS often has been discussed over the years. When we first set up the society everyone involved except the undersigned was a modeler. However, we decided that the Society would concentrate on history and that modeling rather would be an important byproduct of that historical research.

We felt that the major national magazines had enough material about how to build things, and that if we supplied the modeler with good official C&O photos, drawings, and data then those could be used in accurate modeling. This has worked out well.

I wrote a rather famous editorial in our magazine about 20 years ago called “The Modeler as Historian.” It received a lot of attention, even in the national model press. In it I simply said that I had found that in many cases the modelers do the best research and are the most active in developing historical background material of all kinds. And. . . models are, in many cases, all we have to illustrate the past. There is no C&O T-1 2-10-4 on earth, but there are some great models of it in various scales, all of which give us the feel and appearance of the real thing.

Models have always had an important place in museums and history. After all, if one goes to the Mariners’ Museum in Newport News they do not expect to see the Great Eastern in some lagoon out back, but rather to see a wonderful model of it. So it should be with trains.

In this issue as well we include a few documents, selected at random from the archival files, for your information and enjoyment.

C&OHS Receives C&O Slides taken by the

Late J. David Ingles


Dave Ingles in his Trains magazine office in 1997.

Most railfans will be familiar with the name of J. David Ingles, who was with Kalmbach Publishing for 47 years. After a time as a newspaperman in Springfield, Ill., Dave joined the Trains magazine staff in 1971as Associate Editor and succeeded David P. Morgan as Editor in 1987, completing his career from 1992 until his death in 2020 as Senior Editor. He was born in Dearborn, Mich., and his career was at Kalmbach headquarters in Milwaukee, Wisc., so it’s logical that many of his slides are of C&O operations in Michigan.

Unlike the large slide collections of so many railfans, his photos were sorted out by some of his railfan friends at the request of his daughter Susan and donated to appropriate historical organizations. The C&OHS received the C&O portion of his collection a few weeks ago, and he we have just begun to scan and enter them into our collection (about 3,000 slides). Because the majority of the images are taken on C&O lines in Michigan and Ohio, their addition to our collection is very welcome since that region has the least coverage in the indexed photo collection as it stands. Images taken of other railroads have been, we understand, sent to those organizations as well.

We are most grateful to Susan Ingles for these images, and for her understanding of the importance of these photos to the history of railroading during especially the decades of the 1960s and 1970s. We hear of so many collections that are discarded by heirs, or are sold to commercial interests where they are not available for public use, but C&OHS will make these images available to all interested people at reasonable prices.

The donation of these photos to C&OHS ensures that they are and will be available to anyone interested, member or public, as long as the Society exists, and at a reasonable cost. – They can prove a further lasting legacy to a gentleman named J. David Ingles as well. I never knew him well, but I did have a few contacts with him in the mid-late 1970s, and he was always a considerate and helpful person for me, a virtual unknown in the august company of railfans in that period. - Dave Ingles is gone, but some of his camera work will remain for future use and enjoyment.

Examples of J. David Ingles C&O Photography


This photo is an unusual combined consist. Part of the train is C&O’s No. 46, The Sportsman, and the other part is the B&O’s No. 20, The Capitol/Detroit. The combined train is leaving Detroit en route to Toledo where the C&O train will be detached and head on to Columbus and Ashland, Ky. There it will be combined with No. 4 out of Cincinnati for the trip east on the C&O main line. The 11-car train has C&O E8 No. 4016 and B&O No. 1446 and the consist is an eclectic make-up on C&O and B&O cars. The date is in September, 1966. (J. David Ingles Photo, COHS 57444). – Image Copyright by C&OHS. May not be reprinted or electronically re-transmitted without permission from the Society.


This is C&O No. 12, one of The Pere Marquettes, running between Detroit and Grand Rapids. It is passing through the C&O’s Rougemere yard in Dearborn, as it approaches its terminal at Detroit in August, 1966. The bridges in the distance take the C&O tracks over the New York Central. The train has its usual single E8, 30-foot apartment RPO (called “mail & express” cars on C&O), two lightweight C&O coaches of the 1600-series, and a heavyweight coach. The latter may have been for some type of special party that day. It is a B&O car in C&O paint scheme. (J. David Ingles photo, COHS 57448) – Image Copyright by C&OHS. May not be reprinted or electronically retransmitted without permission from the Society.


This three-car Train No. 46 was photographed at Fostoria, Ohio, in October, 1968. Since its mainline connection with No. 4 at Ashland had been severed when No. 4 was discontinued in May of that year, it was running as a connecting train for No. 2, The George Washington. The first coach is one of the two unusual cars purchased by C&O in 1950 for use on its Michigan trains as Nos. 134-135 (later 1700-01). See the Nov./Dec. 2020 issue of the C&O Historical Magazine for an article about these cars. (J. David Ingles photo, COHS 57456) – Image Copyright by C&OHS.

E7 No. 4511 is nosing past a C&O freight headed by GP30 No. 3014 in Rougemere yard leaving Detroit on No. 13, running into the western sun, in April, 1964. By this time most of the E7s had been transferred to B&O service, but No. 4511 was still working the Pere Marquettes between Detroit and Grand Rapids. (J. David Ingles photo, COHS 57468) – Image Copyright by C&OHS. May not be reprinted or electronically retransmitted without permission from the Society.


Dave Ingles snapped this photo in April, 1961, in Detroit. NW2 No. 58 was still wearing its Pere Marquette paint even at this late date. It was built in June, 1946, just a year before PM merged into C&O. The wooden caboose is No. 90912. C&O began painting its cabooses yellow in 1956. (J. David Ingles photo, COHS 57497) – Image Copyright by C&OHS. May not be reprinted or electronically retransmitted without permission from the Society.


One can feel the cold in this Dec. 29, 1934 image of C&O F7 No. 7036 with a freight at Hammond, Ind. The F7B is No. 8508 painted in the passenger colors to accompany FP7s, while GP7 No. 5794 trails.

Alco S-2 switcher No. 9151 was working on the Russell, Ky., yard in this photo taken Oct. 9, 1969. The engine was built in September, 1949, and was in the first batch of diesels ever to turn a wheel on the C&O. It had been repainted to the post-1955 paint scheme featuring a solid blue body with yellow frame and steps and the Futura Demi Bold lettering with the road name spelled out fully. (J. David Ingles photo, COHS 57629) – Image Copyright by C&OHS. May not be reprinted or electronically retransmitted without permission from the Society.


The unusual EMD TR4 set was used at the Russell yard for many years in hump pusher duty. Here Nos. 9552-9553-9554 (ABB set) in October, 1967, have obviously been repainted fairly recently to the simplified Futura Demi Bold scheme that C&O began using in 1955. The units were originally numbered 6500 A, B, & C. (J. David Ingles photo, COHS 57653) – Image Copyright by C&OHS. May not be reprinted or electronically retransmitted without permission from the Society.


C&O purchased only a few Baldwin-built diesels. Here AS-616 No. 2214 (formerly 5549) is at Russell in October, 1967. (J. David Ingles photo, COHS 57662) – Image Copyright by C&OHS. May not be reprinted or electronically retransmitted without permission from the Society.


C&O Caboose No. 3681 was one that was rebuilt at the Grand Rapids Shops in 1970. It had apparently recently traded its blue paint scheme for yellow. The photo was taken on C&O’s Canadian Division in Windsor, Ontario on March 9, 1975. (J. David Ingles photo, COHS 57669) – Image Copyright by C&OHS.

Alco Century C-630 No. 2103 is pictured here at Detroit in April, 1968. The big C-630s were the last Alco products C&O purchased (in 1967). (J. David Ingles photo, COHS 57701) – Image Copyright by C&OHS. May not be reprinted or electronically retransmitted without permission from the Society.

The Modeler's Corner

By Rick Gartrell

It is the myriad little things that set the tone for your railroad. One of these is the common coal house found scattered across the C&O, especially during the steam era. It seems that there was a non-standard coal house near the Ansted station on the Hawks Nest Subdivision. There is no known photo of the coal house, but there is a drawing in the archives (X-3136 ) that shows the as built version. Below is an extract from drawing X-3136.


This little building was 8 x 10 feet, with shiplap siding and tongue and groove siding used for the doors. Building this is easy – make a styrene rectangular box as a core and laminate the siding to the box and the basics are done. The problem is what to use for HO scale shiplap siding and tongue & groove in styrene? If you do the math, Evergreen’s O-Scale car siding (#2067) with 3.25-in. spacing is visually a dead-ringer for 6-in. HO scale shiplap and their HO-scale car siding (#2037) works for the tongue & groove doors. Add in some other Evergreen scale strips, Tichy strap hinges and some tar-paper roofing to complete the construction. Painting and weathering completes the project.

Little out-buildings like the coal houses really help establish your modelling efforts as being part of a C&O railway system. If the standard designs (10-ton coal houses are available as N (MD-20-849<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001KJwsjEGA5GMjEXj_mDhok3FjLZMv5u3jN2AkNZwR4QUQNvABQMV-NR30oar5qgx7DFDB-KE9X99oNqUWuZAjKHzjtYQ8Ow-TFoRmclBniMWliY1jM2xxWgHdlRX8ccIwNlsI9A97pXQeKbveRw2sVDFBcQ8v9G4GdPssdJROkeKJ7jtRYjemqysBm0bPHt8aiSXgU4Nk7HnlSOdNOd6rpHUn2Zn723gwV3eMsfQervUIyK9s4hvgbQ==&c=tNThX3XXCuZNu-707v4DFcwt6ndY3I9o_jbtgq58jc5a8S1ngamsPw==&ch=J_8zsDcbzDQL8lpTKwXsjWX8zFWuVKhqcXKBuIwX28VzjW9mg2no4w==>), HO (MD-20-850<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001KJwsjEGA5GMjEXj_mDhok3FjLZMv5u3jN2AkNZwR4QUQNvABQMV-NYxZy6KbPTJvtJi6m7KDfjHe0F5xfe4qtbdiiV-IES0BnAt6uDBOfZNv1sKLvNnOSeWubj59boQk8EuJZ_4KYJOBzA3aGHYyPtTMPP1TujF6Z-FNLHklSsKq8m2ByB6dlMg27v1MQSqpEZJMTr4mM6uKHS71aeIRCwak6bw41n79JP2TSTDlfVT19F_irpO1Rw==&c=tNThX3XXCuZNu-707v4DFcwt6ndY3I9o_jbtgq58jc5a8S1ngamsPw==&ch=J_8zsDcbzDQL8lpTKwXsjWX8zFWuVKhqcXKBuIwX28VzjW9mg2no4w==>) and O-scale (MD-20-851<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001KJwsjEGA5GMjEXj_mDhok3FjLZMv5u3jN2AkNZwR4QUQNvABQMV-NR30oar5qgx71ThC3rPxl3dA-jyhqF_tTqytlG3E3-VEwC0F2hm416j7Sau-IlzONtzMloKKGMKM7Y4FNGLJqAPFZ0cS__oONjwqyUjal_KPO45XWsInVCYm7Q3IcgBKYvNtHPJPmN5AZyJ3oDTH53AQbQndFP4jrrWvM5ck-R-4SkTMEPeXFts9m3ldRQXdqw==&c=tNThX3XXCuZNu-707v4DFcwt6ndY3I9o_jbtgq58jc5a8S1ngamsPw==&ch=J_8zsDcbzDQL8lpTKwXsjWX8zFWuVKhqcXKBuIwX28VzjW9mg2no4w==>) kits in ChessieShop.com<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001KJwsjEGA5GMjEXj_mDhok3FjLZMv5u3jN2AkNZwR4QUQNvABQMV-NZwBDyz31gVVR7j2RughesNzEX2b-u5qNG-hHJ20vTCaWPEhgFkMHA2uDRJuLoFH7DC6pzt2NLSWS29g9nORfIzdaKk3S1XrrA==&c=tNThX3XXCuZNu-707v4DFcwt6ndY3I9o_jbtgq58jc5a8S1ngamsPw==&ch=J_8zsDcbzDQL8lpTKwXsjWX8zFWuVKhqcXKBuIwX28VzjW9mg2no4w==>) aren’t what you need, search the COHS archives (https://archives.cohs.org/<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001KJwsjEGA5GMjEXj_mDhok3FjLZMv5u3jN2AkNZwR4QUQNvABQMV-NQYbhuqCJb6VSiy4uEDOWz859TXfDIcinjXHVC0YN3mXCPU8EB1cRVIz28mk7c0vjLZcog-54V5EVH2XkMhvNvhUOzp9_nF1DA==&c=tNThX3XXCuZNu-707v4DFcwt6ndY3I9o_jbtgq58jc5a8S1ngamsPw==&ch=J_8zsDcbzDQL8lpTKwXsjWX8zFWuVKhqcXKBuIwX28VzjW9mg2no4w==>) or send the COHS a research request (e-mail tdixon at cohs.org or telephone 540-862-2210 9am-5pm weekdays).


If you have a scene or project that is inspired by the C&O please contact the Basement Subdivision editor (Rick Gartrell at gartrell at bearweb.com). Ideally this will lead to an article in the C&O Historical Magazine, but some short subjects and/or photos just may end up here (like this one did). And if you have an idea for a C&O product that is not on the market, let me know – there is a group of us who are in frequent contact with manufacturers so we can pass along ideas or mayhap even produce some under the COHS banner.

From The Archives


The C&OHS has about 150,000 engineering drawings prepared by C&O between 1870 and 1990. They cover all aspects of the railway. We thought it would be interesting to illustrate this small drawing (original 8.5x10) that was prepared in 1934 for the installation of a hand pump well at BS Cabin (Boys Home near Covington, Va.). The draftsman in the chief engineer's office at Richmond must have taken a lot of time to prepare this highly-detailed drawing for such a simple installation. Note it also states the date the work was started and completed and the AFE (Authorized For Expenditure) that allocated the funds for it. (C&OHS Collection, CED 12824-B)

The three pages above about C&O's famous (or infamous) steam-turbine-electric class M-1 No. 500 was taken from the January, 1948 issue of Tracks magazine. Tracks was published by C&O's public relations department between 1944 to 1958. It received many awards for excellence in industrial publishing. The particular article describes a tour by the new M-1 soon after its delivery in late-1947. As most know, the three M-1s were intended for use as power for The Chessie ultra-luxury coach train that was to have been inaugurated in the Spring, 1948. The train never ran and the M-1s were used for only about a year on regular trains before being scrapped.

Tracks magazines were issued each month and contained about half material about employees and material of interest to them, while the other half usually had interesting articles about the C&O's activities at the time, such as the one reproduced above.

Tracks is a great resource for what C&O was doing in the period 1944-1958. The C&OHS offers a complete set of the magazines on the CD under catalog AV-10-124 $29.95<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001KJwsjEGA5GMjEXj_mDhok3FjLZMv5u3jN2AkNZwR4QUQNvABQMV-NQ03YHZ4xnQb-skZaMxYIv6-FktgaCkIY8t3bCkUsKI6eB6awrZ7bdUoZ1Org4IslTbSwAWRob5VydfMAXk7wWvXE336W0tc8x2qIxMt-fh5d3vnojp15qw57Niszb82YG0AQ-QLvZ8ndEcy8PIW03ZlzkIP3ZkDAvrXkK7kmuO3tCmKFNzdM983CWCrU9BN9g==&c=tNThX3XXCuZNu-707v4DFcwt6ndY3I9o_jbtgq58jc5a8S1ngamsPw==&ch=J_8zsDcbzDQL8lpTKwXsjWX8zFWuVKhqcXKBuIwX28VzjW9mg2no4w==>.


New Book for Fall Targeted to Modelers!

Chesapeake & Ohio Equipment, Facilities, and Operations 1950-1971

- Hardbound

- 256 pages

- 32 pages in color

- 400 B&W illustrations

- Drawings

- Extended captions

- 100-lb high-quality glossy paper

Some discussion from Chief Historian and Founder (and author of this book), Tom Dixon:

I have prepared this new book with modelers in mind.

It has photos and drawings of locomotives and cars from various angles, plus drawings, painting/lettering diagrams, and operational data in extended captions. – I have put a lot of eggs in this basket hoping that my confidence in its value to modelers will pay off for the Society—and for you!

In 2017 we did a higher design all color 144-page book called Chesapeake & Ohio, Decades of Change, 1961-1981 in Color, in which we printed many high quality photos. (See catalog no. BK-17-893<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001KJwsjEGA5GMjEXj_mDhok3FjLZMv5u3jN2AkNZwR4QUQNvABQMV-NQ4lF5mWz7eeR7F_Cc-ljvEyX3779mNklKBEzKTJqBJmmMbVn3C3ePyVmZ_QER3FQuUI5Hx3xEYuvOUgwoMZkJepza-I8U4J2hgG3rvcM9NABXPaOnvipk_tFX9YY0a0YARLRa2nnHYGJa5J7ULWEHqsTYvquNPdB9QmOd78iB8eNxj8WWe2g0SC2LCKGtbo4g==&c=tNThX3XXCuZNu-707v4DFcwt6ndY3I9o_jbtgq58jc5a8S1ngamsPw==&ch=J_8zsDcbzDQL8lpTKwXsjWX8zFWuVKhqcXKBuIwX28VzjW9mg2no4w==>). ---- This new book is an expansion and development of that theme for modelers. – - Whereas the 2017 book was for visual effect, this new one is arranged in more of a Cyclopedia style so that it can be of better use to anyone interested in details for modeling.

That isn’t to say that it should not be good for anyone of the railfan/historical persuasion (such as I) who is interested in the same era.

We have a color section of 32 pages just to give some ideas and impressions of the period, expecting that anyone interested will have or will purchase the Decades of Change book for more good color. But there are 400 or so good B&W photos as well as official C&O drawings on the other 230 pages. These are from railfan photographers and many from official C&O sources that cover other aspects of equipment, facilities, and operations.

Passenger operations are covered, but not in detail. Rather, we hope that those interested in a very complete passenger train story will have or will buy our book published last year titled Chesapeake & Ohio Passenger Trains: The Last Decades, in Color, 1950-1971 (See catalog No. BK-20-948<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001KJwsjEGA5GMjEXj_mDhok3FjLZMv5u3jN2AkNZwR4QUQNvABQMV-NQ4lF5mWz7eeII1HCx3IhGO7ufYm67lGPEWx33Ua3oWG31oE5Oq4wQ2ee0bGsGxIEd102SsPuPu0niCSd2Au_oEczeBJ7kOdQhrqyBWiFpV4RGPpoPBK-vhMEeMAajzonO-iAJ9eTGl-OPeSqoBi1l_nv2-q1Q_ifmlyvSs2fSMOIw-tFGxyWQEhYCN40SwIuQ==&c=tNThX3XXCuZNu-707v4DFcwt6ndY3I9o_jbtgq58jc5a8S1ngamsPw==&ch=J_8zsDcbzDQL8lpTKwXsjWX8zFWuVKhqcXKBuIwX28VzjW9mg2no4w==>)

The new book starts with the last few years of steam 1950-56, and then deals extensively with the first generation and early second generation diesel periods, ending just before Chessie System in 1972.

Your early and enthusiastic ordering will help us make this book a reality this year. I solicit your support

Prince, W. Va. T Shirt!


Following World War II, C&O Railway Chairman Robert Young envisioned a revitalized passenger service along Chessie's famed railroad, including new passenger equipment, reconstructed passenger stations, and a new train called The Chessie. While several new stations were designed in the art modern style, and three train sets comprising The Chessie were built, the only permanent fixture of Robert Young's post-war dream was the new passenger station at Prince, W. Va., a single beacon of the future he envisioned within the wilderness of the New River Gorge.

Painstakingly created by digital artist Ken Miller, and now used for the first time outside of the C&OHS magazine, the iconic C&O Railway iconography used by the railroad solely on the 1946 Prince passenger station is available on this wonderful t-shirt. Unique to this lone station, still standing today and served by Amtrak's Cardinal, the one-of-a-kind C&O logo adorns the street side of the structure, and the famed red type spelling PRINCE can still be viewed trainside as it was meant to be from Robert Young's new fleet of passenger trains that he dreamed would keep the American passenger on the rails for decades to come.

Chessie and Family Coaster Set!


These very elegant coasters are made from absorbent sandstone. Included in the set we used art taken from the original Chessie Portfolio and the Chesapeake & Ohio Lines art that was used during that same time frame (the 1930s).

96 pages with over 200 photos and drawings. Descriptions and data on C&O’s maintenance-of-way cars, tenders, and track equipment. This important feature of railroading is often misunderstood and little treated. Hundreds of photos as well as drawings illustrate C&O’s camp car train, and other types of work equipment. – Ideal for modelers, who should have a string of this equipment on sidings near stations, cabins, etc. The book’s illustrations are mainly from the 1945-1970 era.

Our second and third quarterly books have been delayed this year because of several problems the latest of which is paper supply at the printer. We have just sent this book in for printing. We hope it and the third quarter (Peninsula Subdivision) will be ready concurrently within 30-45 days. -- Meanwhile, if you have not ordered this year's books, we encourage you to do so by clicking here<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001KJwsjEGA5GMjEXj_mDhok3FjLZMv5u3jN2AkNZwR4QUQNvABQMV-NR30oar5qgx79Q-CyXlT6_o3vyNKVuy3qAB_AQv61UpgtLNlZIsLhraqXI56Bw5R-Q43FOpLgQrzYGyj_XbD2y8SBoCrG9Bb_BJOVKll01HM8lfkKnPsaN3pOGNsiw9yGxuwp6DxjyUDsB9902LhEMBDca9skiLc8LMbaswBWIYN9jMwqWaAYmVRJ06RMCPohw==&c=tNThX3XXCuZNu-707v4DFcwt6ndY3I9o_jbtgq58jc5a8S1ngamsPw==&ch=J_8zsDcbzDQL8lpTKwXsjWX8zFWuVKhqcXKBuIwX28VzjW9mg2no4w==>.
