Washington & Old Dominion Railroad covered the
railroad's corporate history, construction, and operation. This
second volume expands the coverage with a geographic focus on four
locations: Rosslyn, Great Falls, Leesburg, and Purcellville. The images
within offer a look at the railroad's feed and grain business, railfan-type
views of equipment, and a visual record of methods used to maintain
the right-of-way and place equipment back on the tracks. Additionally,
this work offers a history of the conversion of the right-of-way into the
very popular Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park.
