    Well, folks, that's it for now. Perhaps one day, I'll locate a few new locations for my C&O flimsy collection. If so, I'll share them here. Meanwhile, I hope it's been interesting for at least some of you.

    We'll need to rely on your C&O resources for this one! I sure have no idea. But would be interested in an answer. So I can update my notes.

    My brother-in-law found one pretty close to the swing bridge in Grand Haven - it's HO scale. I won't be adding anything like this - my layout starts in Holland MI and transitions directly to West Virginia - unless I'm running my B&O stuff - then I'm not sure if I'm in Maryland, PA, or West VA!

    I can't find any reference to the REA and the Ronceverte station - so I'm guessing that it was just a C&O station - and the picture I posted is the freight station.

    The Pere Marquette had streamliners? Or is this the Pere Marquette name trains run by the C&O?

    The Pere Marquette Railroad had an all streamliner train called The Pere Marquette that started running between Detroit and Grand Rapids, and Grand Rapids and Chicago in 1946. These were 7 car trains pulled by an E7. More specifically the train was made up in this order:
    E7 engine; mail & baggage car; baggage; coach; coach; diner; coach; coach.

    In 1948 after The Chessie was cancelled, C&O trnsferred most of that equipment up to Michigan, and it was very common to see a dome/observation car on a typical train.

    Today Amtrak runs The Pere Marquette between Grand Rapids and Chicago.
