Vacation visit to C&O historical society
I haven't been to COHS in Clifton Forge Va for about 10 years. The last time I was there it was basically an old store front on the main road (US 60) in Clifton Forge. They have a very extensive collection of drawings, documents & photographs. I understand they have received financial help from government because it is so complete and intense. It is supposedly the largest of any R.R in the nation. I have looked through some of the lists of what they have collected and it is very impressive. Now they have stepped up to another level. I think this all happened about 5 years ago.

There is a large scale probably 12 inch model R.R. that goes around most of the area. They have several live steam, including an H8 and D...##ls for the other people Wink .
