After the N&W suburban train to Orland Park was equipped with RTA bi-level cars in the summer of 1979, Conrail leased the former N&W coaches for use on its Valparaiso trains. Train No. 454 is seen behind two Conrail Geeps(GP7 5909 and GP38-2 8187) running long hood forward above the ICG at Grand Crossing, in October 1979. The use of the ex-N&W coaches in this sevice lasted just a few months, as Conrail turned the service over to Amtrak in 1980. Doug Davidson photo with permission
