Chesapeake & Ohio 300 and 1612

Chesapeake & Ohio 300 and 1612

On the inbound tracks at the Hinton, W.Va., engine terminal circa late 1940s are #300, class L-2 Hudson (4-6-4), just in off a passenger run from Cincinnati or Detroit; and #1612, a 2-6-6-6 Allegheny class H-8, used primarily in push/pull coal drag service over the Appalachians to Clifton Forge, Va. The engine crew at the left brought in one of the engines; not sure which one. C&O Railway photo. View full size.
