Chesapeake & Ohio Northern Railway Company bridge
Description: Panoramic photograph of the C&O bridge over the Ohio River at Sciotoville under construction. The C&O Company was originally established in the mid 1800s when a number of companies came together in Virginia. After it had been established as a company transporting coal across the country it managed to grow in Ohio and began exporting all its coal into the state so that Ohio could use it for its booming industries. Through the years the company continued to expand and take in other companies as part of the larger system. This would lead to the company that it's known as still, CSX. View on Ohio Memory.
