Review of Conrail Chicago to Elkhart

This is Conrail's high traffic Chicago Line, part of Big Blue's Dearborn Division, and Elkhart is a large classification and hump yard on the Contrail System. We'll see over 70 trains! It's a mix of train types from trailer-van to mail to steel and manifest.

Locations include Chicago, Conrail on the BRC, Whiting, Gary, Ogden Dunes, Burns Harbor, Otis, Pinola, LaPorte, South Bend and Elkhart. Besides Conrail power we'll see a variety of western road run through power and units and trains from CP, CSX, NS, SP, UP, Chicago Short Line and the South Shore.
