    This illustration from a contemporary trade journal shows the generator in the combination car which generated the electricity for the lighting. A small steam motor (with steam from the locomotive) in the box turned the generator which supplied the power   COHS   37325 
    “Jack The Ripper,” C&O F-10 4-6-0 #129 was the “big engine” that was assigned to the first FFV trains over the mountains between Clifton Forge and Charlottesville and Clifton Forge and Hinton. Seen here is later years it was still a snappy looking classic tapered boiler engine of the era.    COHS   37326 
    Getting up to speed with its seven cars, The FFV (No. 3) leaves Alderson, West Virginia, on the morning of October 16, 1909 at 9:38 a.m. just an hour late due to heavy mail business. Consist appears to be full RPO, Combine (baggage/coach), two coaches, diner, and two sleepers. A fuzzy but a remarkable action photo for a hundred years ago. W. W. Stevens Photo   COHS   37327 
    A superb classic photo of A-6 4-4-0 No. 55 and a passenger train at an unknown locale in the mid-1890s with its whole crew posing. By this time C&O passenger train crews had uniforms of at sort, at least caps. Note the arched-door RPO/Express car behind the tender. It is still the era of the link-and-pin coupler and giant wooden pilot. The bell is polished and fairly shining.    COHS   37328 
    This C&O train, seen here at the end of the wooden era in 1909-10, has a high-stepping 4-4-2 Atlantic in charge of its seven-car consist of full express, full RPO, and five passenger-carrying cars, at Ft. Spring, West Virginia.    COHS   37329 
    When C&O bought the Chicago, Cincinnati & Louisville Railroad that eventually became its Chicago Division, it began to run its name trains straight through Cincinnati and on to Chicago directly, even though it also continued through interline Pullmans on Big Four trains to that point as well. Here C&O 4-4-2 Atlantic No. 89 is departing Chicago in about 1911 with one of the through trains. This arrangement lasted, with many alterations over the years, until the World War I era.    COHS   37330 
    By the turn of the 20th Century C&O had a number of branch lines in operation and was running local passenger trains on them. Here a one-car train is about to leave Thurmond, West Virginia, to go up the Loup Creek Branch in about 1900 with an 1870s arched window open platform combine car and probably a 2-8-0.    COHS   37331 
    A four car train behind 4-4-0 No. 54 is on the Greenbrier Branch soon after it was opened in 1901. This branch supplied lumber products for the next sixty years and was one of the few C&O branches not devoted to coal. Its passenger traffic held up well, with the last branch line trains running until 1957.   COHS   37332 
    This wonderful, high quality glass plate photo from the late 1890s shows a train time crowd of passengers at Clifton Forge, Virginia, C&O’s mountain terminal. The giant depot/hotel was painted orange with white trim, while the railroad YMCA (for train crews) beside it appears in more subdued colors.    COHS   37333 
    This is an interior builder’s photo of one of the original 1889 FFV coaches. Note the ornate decorations on the walls and especially the ceiling. Pullman photo.   COHS   37334 
    Full RPO car No. 87 was built by C&O shops in 1900 with a steel underframe. By this time railway mail service was hitting its stride in efficiency and performance and the many “apartment” RPO cars C&O was using were supplemented by full cars on its mainline name trains. No. 87 had a steel underframe and end posts and thus is termed a “composite” wood/steel car. The RPOs were the first to get strengthening because the rode in a dangerous position right behind the locomotive. ICC Valuation photo.    COHS   37335 
    Huntington shops turned out this “apartment” RPO and express car in 1901. It seems to have had a very small RPO section with only one window and was probably used on secondary trains, and is shown here at Ashland, Kentucky in 1915, probably on a Louisville-bound train. ICC Valuation photo.   COHS   37336 
    At first mail and express were combined in the same car, but as volume of both increased, separate cars were often needed. His is full express car 145 built at Huntington in 1904, and pictured at Clifton Forge in 1915. ICC Valuation photo.   COHS   37337 
    This is one of the few builder photos we have which show the original FFV cars in 1889. It is combination car #204. Note the train name on the letter board and the ends of the car and the narrow vestibules. The interior of the car had simple walk-over reversible seating and a combination of electric and gas lights. The ornate carved paneling was used even in this humble car. Pullman photo.   COHS   37338
