the late 1940’s,
due to significant post war backorders of diesel and modernized
passenger equipment, The B&O Railroad, along with rival
C&O Railroad, streamlined a few steam locomotives and upgraded
existing passenger equipment in an effort to boost rail traffic.
B&O’s 4-6-2, P7 #5301 (The Cincinnatian) is seen alongside
C&O’s 4-6-4 L1 Hudson #490 (The George Washington) at
Cincinnati Union Terminal. These engines reflected the hope for future
passenger business. Ironically, within 15 years, these two railroads
would merge, forming the foundation of one of today’s premier railroad
freight companies, CSX.
