Conrail TV10 at Dumont  Contributor's Pick!       
The new GP40-2s were a staple on Conrail Trailer Van trains on the old NYC West Shore. This hotshot train ran from Chicago to Croxton at the time. It should have left Chicago Englewood at 1:30a, reached Elkhart at 4:15a, Toledo TV at 9:00a, Cleveland at 1:15p, Buffalo 6:30p, DeWitt at 11:00p, Selkirk at 2:15a, and through here at about 8:00a. Judging by the length of the shadows it was running pretty close to on time on this day.
