Conrail freight train picks up train orders to run on the Ivanhoe Branch Conrail freight train enters the Ivanhoe Branch

Just after the Chessie train went by, Conrail engines 3370 and 8024 lead their train off the NYC mainline and onto the Ivanhoe Branch for the run to the Indiana Harbor Belt. The head brakeman grabs a set of train orders from the top delivery fork. I think this is Conrail train symbol PINP going to Blue Island Yard and eventually to Union Pacific's classification yard at North Platte, NE. There is a 20mph speed restriction around this leg of the connector. Disk 114
