"George Washington's Railroad"

(1940s ) C&O
This educational publicity film looks at the history of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad and includes a ride on one of the luxury trains of the time. The Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad was formed in 1869 in Virginia from several smaller Virginia railroads. Led by industrialist Collis P. Huntington, it reached from Virginia's capital city of Richmond to the Ohio River by 1873, where the railroad town (and later city) of Huntington, West Virginia was named for him. Tapping the coal reserves of West Virginia, the C&O's Peninsula Extension to new coal piers on the harbor of Hampton Roads resulted in the creation of the new City of Newport News. Coal revenues also led the forging of a rail link to the Midwest, eventually reaching Columbus, Cincinnati and Toledo in Ohio and Chicago, Illinois.
