Two Conrail SD80MAC's await assignment under the Fuel Rack at Conway Yard (west of Pittsburgh on PA65) on October 12, 1996. These units will likely be the last new power for Conrail, as the second order for SD80MACs has been changed: SD70MAC's for CSX and SD70's to Norfolk Southern.

Another Conway shot, two Union Pacific units (an SD40-2 and a C40-8) repose at the engine facility. Foreign units often venture east to Conway, occasionally these units will continue east of Conway. Foreign units can lead east of Conway if the train is headed towards the Mon Line; however, trains headed for the Pittsburgh or Conemaugh lines need a Conrail lead unit for cab signals.

Later that same day, we stopped in at Rochester, PA on Conrail's Fort Wayne Line. Rochester is junction of the Youngstown Line with the Fort Wayne Line. Westbound RoadRailer 261 passes by behind a pair of GP40-2's.

WPMJ-39 with three GP38-2's passes the Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel plant in Steubenville, OH. Note the three WPS switchers in the background, the middle unit is scrapped on a flatcar.

Berea Tower is one of the busiest junctions on the Conrail system. Berea is the center of Conrail's "Big X", connecting the Chicago Line, the Cleveland Short Line, and the Indianapolis Line. Trains from all over the Conrail system travel through Berea, which is just west of Cleveland Airport. Here, South Kearny-to-Chicago TV-11 travels west past active Berea Tower on a windy day in March, 1997.
