B&O P7 Cincinnatian
After WWII, passenger train ridership was rapidly declining due to the popularity of the automobile and air travel. The B&O rebuilt (4) 4-6-2 P7 Pacifics and (10) heavyweight passenger cars into a matching streamlined luxury train set. The route was a 12.5 hour, 581 mile run from Baltimore, MD to Cincinnati, OH via the mountainous terranes of West Virginia. Due to steep grades and tight time schedules, the train was limited to 5 cars: Baggage Lounge Combine, 52 seat, 56 seat & 60 seat coaches & Cafe Observation Car. With the scarce populations along the route, a lack of ridership resulted in the B&O changing the route to a 6.5 hour, 281 mile flat run from Detroit, MI to Cincinnati. By 1955, diesels had taken over, and the streamlined steamers were shifted to various trains and retired by 1957. The Cincinnatian was discontinued in 1971 when Amtrak took over all of the B&Os passenger services.
Unfortunately, none of the (4) P7’s used for the Cincinnatian were saved.
B&O P7 Cincinnatian set includes: (4) Engines and Tenders and (2) Matching (5) car trainsets
