CO 4-8-4 #601 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Title:  CO 4-8-4 #601 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Description:  Fairly nice photo by Otto C. Perry of the Lima 4-8-4 Northern type steam locomotive although the C&O referred to them as "Greenbriers". The unit was delivered in December of 1935. Seen here a year after delivery, it still has its shiny boiler shell and clean white wall rims. The locos in the class were given patriotic names - this one was "Patrick Henry". The J-3 class was retired in 1953.

CO 4-8-4 #614 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Title:  CO 4-8-4 #614 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Description:  Interesting loco built by Lima in June of 1948. Massive, powerful and commanding to say the least and a loco with nine lives. The unit would continue long after the other Greenbriers (4-8-4's to the C&O) were retired. It was a test loco for the American Coal Enterprise as they tried developing a coal burning steam locomotive that could compete with diesel loco on a cost basis. It also served as the Chessie Safety Special. This photo by Arthur B. Johnson.
