Identifier:
2018.5.19
Description:
This is a black and white photograph of a Chesapeake & Ohio Railway model NW2 steam locomotive numbered 5204.

The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway operated from 1869 - 1987, servicing Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. In 1987, the C&O was merged into CSX Transportation to form one of four major railroad companies left in the country (as of 2018).

The front quarter of a car visible on the right-hand side of the photograph suggests that this image dates to the 1950s.
