Power at home  Contributor's Pick!       
The terminal roads in Chicago see trains from all the participants who come into the area-most of whom are part owners-but the IHB also runs quite a few of its own trains, such as this transfer at La Grange about to pass under the BN-note the signal bridge above the GBW box car. The GBW is now itself a long ago memory. Over the years, IHB has played with their paint schemes. In 1984, it was orange, actually a good looking scheme, and aided visibility.
