    Does anyone know if The C&O RR had any GE 70 Ton switchers in their fleet?
    I have tried to do searches, but no luck!

    Thanks,
    David:-D

    No the C&O did not own any 70 Tonners.
    C&O did own one GE 44 Tonner #1.

    Ok, Just found this site, CHESAPEAKE AND OHIO DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE ROSTER - NE Rails
    and If I am reading it right C&0 had 3 of them #20 - 22
    Someone traded me a new Bachmann Louisville & Nashville DCC equipped switcher for some Building Blocks off my site!
    Now that I think C&O had a few I just need to see a prototype picture so that I can re-do it with the right decals and details !! I found this picture from the L&N
