Dwight Jones 160 pages Hardcover

This book covers Western Maryland non-revenue equipment that survived into the Chessie System years and received a Chessie six-digit road number. Every piece of equipment is covered in a detailed roster giving old and new numbers and equipment histories. The 160-page hard cover book contains extensive photo coverage with nearly 200 photos (25 in color), 36 WM AFEs explaining the railroad’s justification for the equipment and its cost, 34 diagram sheets and 2 maps. This is the most extensive coverage ever afforded to WM maintenance equipment. See the history of wreck cranes, Jordan Spreaders, scale test cars, ballast cars, former Troop Sleeper and Kitchen cars, safety instruction cars, and all other types. One chapter covers those cars which have survived, mostly at museums and tourist lines.
