    Caught a couple of weeks ago passing through Elkhart, Indiana. I am not sure who owns the tracks there, no two trains that passed through while I was there were led by locos with the same paint job.

    Nice picture!

    I pass Abrams Yard in King of Prussia every day and there are always locomotives with different Conrail and Norfolk Southern paint schemes there. Once in a while a CP or CSX locomotive wanders in.

    Many crews leave the doors open on units without air conditioning.

    Those tracks, and trains, are owned by Norfolk Southern. Notice the patch on the lead unit, it is now a Norfolk Southern locomotive.
