Maintenance of Way Motorcars

Charles Ford

An excellent book that provides a solid overview of the history of the Chessie cars, including Fairbanks Morse, Mudge and others.

It has a nice balance of both the cars themselves, and the environment in which they operated. Lots of drawings of car sheds, (tool houses) and other lineside features.

Given the dominance of Fairmont Railway Motors, there is extensive coverage of the brand, including numerous photos sourced from Harsco.

Available from the C&O Historical Society.
