An essentially new copy of Bent, Zig-Zag & Crooked, A Narrow Gauge Railroad that served eastern Ohio from 1877 to 1931. Actual title of railroad was Bellaire, Zanesville and Cincinnati. At one time it was the Ohio River and Western, or Old Rickety & Wobbly. Besides the towns in the railroad name, it served Woodsfield, Summerfield, Sarahsville, Caldwell and Cumberland. It stretched across Belmont, Monroe, Noble and Muskingum Counties and a corner of Guernsey Co. The book consists of transcription of newspaper accounts of the railroad and has a route map and 12 pictures of equipment, wrecks, etc.
I purchased this book new for my father soon after it was published (1974) and he and I took great care of it. No marks, creased pages, etc.
Insurance available at extra cost.
