    Book details


Washington & Old Dominion Railroad covered the
railroad s corporate history, construction, and operation. This
second volume expands the coverage with a geographic focus on four
locations: Rosslyn, Great Falls, Leesburg, and Purcellville. The images
within offer a look at the railroad s feed and grain business, railfan-type
views of equipment, and a visual record of methods used to maintain
the right-of-way and place equipment back on the tracks. Additionally,
this work offers a history of the conversion of the right-of-way into the
very popular Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park.
Learn about the history of mills and their place in the local economy.
See how the Burro crane was a jack of all trades. Look under the hood
and inside the cab to imagine what it was like to be an engineer on
one of the railroad s Baldwin-Westinghouse electric freight locomotives."
