Chesapeake & Ohio Rd# 19022 Rel. 4/24

Built in 1957, this 40 foot boxcar with Bettendorf trucks belonged to series 19000-19249. It featured a striking black and yellow paint scheme with a yellow sill stripe. The C&O was formed in 1869 in Virginia, and became a large Class I railroad on the East Coast, headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1972, it became part of the Chessie System, after merging with the B&O and Western Maryland. After several more mergers, the heritage of C&O lives on today as a part of CSX Transportation.
