Doug calls this shot "Conrail without Conrail." Actually, there is one Conrail train here, the westbound ELBN with BNSF LMX power. Meanwhile, a Soo Line trackage rights train heads east on Conrail's Chicago Line behind a CP/I&M Rail Link duo. A CRL transfer from Colehour Yard waits on the No. 3 Running Track, at right, in September 1997. This was not an unusual occurrance along the Chicago line, especially west of Elkhart, as you could sometimes see three or four trains in a row with foreign power before seeing one with Conrail power again.  Doug Davidson photo with permission
