"As the merger scene in the eastern United States heated up in the early 1960s with Erie Lackawanna, N&W-NKP-Wabash, and talk of Penn Central, a union of a different type occurred between the Chesapeake & Ohio and the Baltimore & Ohio.
"While not yet a true “merger” for several reasons, the affiliation was dubbed “C&O/B&O” and quite visible trackside during the 1960s on timetables, advertisements, corporate reports, and especially trackside where C&O and B&O locomotives began mixing it up, especially on the B&O."
