7 of Chesapeake & Ohio 614 Excursion, June 1981
Author: MartyBernard

Chesapeake & Ohio 614 is a class "J-3-A" 4-8-4 "Greenbrier" (Northern) type steam locomotive built in June 1948 by the Lima Locomotive Works in Lima, Ohio for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (C&O) as a member of the J-3-A class. As one of the last commercially built steam locomotives in the United States, the locomotive was built with the primary purpose of hauling long, heavy, high speed express passenger trains for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway such as the George Washington and the Fast Flying Virginian.  Wikipedia

These photos were all taken by Karl Miller.  The slides are marked June 1981.  As for location I'd guess near Detroit given Karl lived in suburban Detroit.

All nice photos Marty.  Thanks for sharing them with all of us.  I also appreciate the photo of the ex-B&O Club/Observation car on the rear, #3302 "Edward G. Hooper" that was owned by Railroad Passenger Cars (RRP) of Baltimore.  This car is now in the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, sitting outside in the front yard collecting rust, a real shame.

Where did you ride from and to?

I'm trying to figure if that is the time frame of the train operating south through Lima, Ohio, on the former B&O.
