The C&O was, by 1984, a part of the larger Chessie System but still maintained much independence. Even so, this has to be one of the last Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad track charts as the C&O officially disappeared into CSX in 1987 and a new look took over. The Virginia Division covers a lot of ground including one of the oldest sections of the line, the Piedmont Sub. The Virginia Division is a consolidation of older smaller divisions like the Clifton Forge and Richmond Divisions.
