    What appears to be an F-15 Pacific type is shown bringing an 11-car westbound train into Charleston, West Virginia, in about 1914, at the opening of the era of modernization. New A-16 4-4-2 Atlantics and F-15 class 4-6-2 Pacifics arrived on C&O in 1902/03 and were operated on all the mainline trains by the date of this photo. Mountain type 4-8-2s were, by this time, also handling the heaviest trains Charlottesville-Hinton. Most cars on this train probably were still wooden except perhaps the RPO and a coach or diner.    COHS   37375 
    F-15 4-6-2 Pacific type No. 154 (built in 1906) pauses at the Charleston station (built the same year), with a westbound train in about 1920. The classic lines of the locomotive include tall capped stack, tall domes, slanted cylinders, large pilot, and large early-style electric headlight.    COHS   37376 
    F-16 No. 462 is power for the eastbound Kentuckian about to leave Charlottesville in 1932 just before its end   COHS   37377 
    In the late-1920s, A-16 No. 294 is leaving Ashland, Kentucky, with local Train No. 8. By this time Ashland had a huge new station and was the center of C&O’s passenger operations on the western end of its line, where mainline train consists were readjusted in the same way as they were at Charlottesville in the east.   COHS   37378 
    F-17 4-6-2 No. 474 is power for No. 6, the eastbound West Virginian, pausing at Huntington in the mid-late 1920s. The F-17s got their “flying pumps” in the late 1920s, having been built in 1914 with this rather plain face. This is one of only two photo is in the C&OHS collection showing The West Virginian.    COHS   37379 
    Old 4-4-0 American types were still very much in use on C&O trains through the World War I era and only phased out in the 1920s. In this photo 4-4-0 No. 77 has the Kentucky section of a name train in tow at Lexington in July 1919. No. 77 was part of the 5-locomotive A-3 class (2nd) built in 1899, the last American types C&O purchased. C.E. Fisher photo.    COHS   37380 
    This wonderful image from July 1919 shows two C&O A-16 Atlantic 4-4-2 types at Lexington, Kentucky in July 1919. Passenger business to and from Lexington and Louisville and intermediate stations was always an important part of C&O traffic, just as the Charlottesville-Newport News line’s business was in the east. C.E. Fisher photo.   COHS   37381 
    Full RPO No. 90 is seen here at Covington, Kentucky, in 1914, already bracketed by steel coaches. It was one of the first group of steel cars purchased by C&O, built by Pressed Steel Car Company in November 1911. It was renumbered 105 in the early 1920s and lasted into the late 1960s. C&O Ry. photo for ICC Valuation survey.   COHS   37382 
 Newport News, Terminal, C&O. Catlin Collection   C. & O. Railroad Office Building, Newport News, Va. Three-quarter north-westerly view of Division office building with additional buildings in rear and two water tanks on left border. Color-tinted, white border RPPC published by Day's Inc., Newport News, Va., No. 128335. Mfg. by TB, Cambridge, Mass. (circle logo) in "Tichnor Quality Views." Divided-back, postally unused. C&O Postcard Collection of R. I. Catlin    COHS   37383 
    RPO No. 110 was one the last RPOs bought by C&O. It was built by Bethlehem Shipbuilding Company in 1926 and was in use until the last RPO run on the C&O in 1968. The 1911-1930 era was the period in which almost all C&O head-end steel cars were built. Bethlehem Shipbuilding photo.   COHS   37384 
    This M&E Car (Mail & Express), also known as an “apartment RPO,” was built by Pullman in 1924 and had a 30-foot RPO apartment. Note that the express end of the car doesn’t say “Railway Express Agency” but “American Railway Express.” This was the era when that company, created by government fiat in WWI, was in charge of almost all express business. In 1929 REA took it over. REA was owned by the constituent railroads. Pullman photo.   COHS   37385 
    B end view of Mail and Express (M&E) combine No. 64. Pullman photo.   COHS   37386 
    In 1929 C&O purchased 12 two-door express cars from Pullman to round out its head-end fleet. Here No. 312 is shown new at the builder. This was the last lot of purpose-built express cars though horse express cars would be added as well as a number of rebuilt second-hand cars during the late 1930s and early 1940s. Pullman photo.   COHS   37387 
    Combination car 223 was one of the first of its type built in steel for C&O, coming from Pullman in September 1913. It looks exactly like a wooden car, even to window transoms and arched restroom window. It was apparently one of the last cars expressly lettered for the FFV, as evidenced by the name on the filigree at the letterboard ends, just as in the wooden era. C&O Ry. Photo for ICC Valuation Survey.   COHS   37388 
    Combination car No. 458 was built by Bethlehem Shipbuilding in 1926 and is in stark contrast to No. 223, it has all the classic lines of the standard heavyweight era with little resemblance to the wooden heritage. In the 1920s name trains carried little head-end business and their baggage was usually accommodated in a combine car such as this. It survived to the end being used in its last years on the Hot Springs mixed train out of Clifton Forge, then spending awhile at the B&O Museum, and now is in the C&O Historical Society’s C&O Heritage Center at Clifton Forge.    COHS   37389 
 S.S. Virginia; Newport News; Terminal; C&O. Catlin Collection   Terminus C. & O. Railway Newport News, showing the Virginia Starting in her Trip to Norfolk, Va. Westward view from the water showing the stern of the S. S. Virginia alongside Pier 1 and original office building on top of hill. View in postcard is older than postmark date (see women's dress). Color-tinted, white border RPPC published by The Chessler Co., Baltimore, MD. Divided-back, postmark 1945. C&O Postcard Collection of R. I. Catlin    COHS   37390 
    Pullman delivered steel coach 456 in August 1913. It had an appearance that mimicked the company’s earlier wooden cars. Contrast this with 434 and 435 which were modeled on the simpler Pennsylvania Railroad design. Photographed at Huntington in 1915. C&O Ry. photo for ICC Valuation Survey.   COHS   37391 
    Coach 682, built by Pullman in 1916, still shows the lines of a wooden car, including leaded glass window transoms and arched toilet windows. Inside it was essentially the same as well, however the electric lighting is along the roof line only, and the chandeliers of the wooden era are now gone. Pullman photo.   COHS   37392 
    Interior view of coach 682, built by Pullman in 1916. Very similar to the earlier wood cars, except that it has electric lighting along the roof line and the chandeliers of the earlier era are gone. Pullman photo.   COHS   37393 
    Coach 862 was built at the very end of the era covered in this chapter, in 1929, and came from Standard Steel Car Company. Standard Steel Car Co. photo.   COHS   37394 
    Diner 459 was built by Pullman in 1911, the first steel diner on the line. Like the coaches and combines of the early steel era it had features that made it look like the wooden cars. This car went further in that the sides replicated the slatted boards of the wooden cars. It was converted to a Parlor Car (No. 920) in 1928. Pullman photo.   COHS   37395 
    Interior of diner 458 was fairly plain, with plenty of lighting fixtures: Clerestory roof, sides, and on the walls over each table. Pullman photo.   COHS   37396 
    Pullman delivered this old looking steel parlor car top C&O in 1916. It seems that cars built 1916 and before at Pullman had the wooden design and look, while those afterward had the standard heavyweight car designs that became familiar over the next decades. Note that car sides at the window strip are formed to look like wooden boards. Pullman photo.   COHS   37397 
    Interior view of Parlor car No. 921, built by Pullman in 1916. Note electric lights, electric fan at the end of the car, and the plush upholstered seats. Pullman photo.   COHS   37398
