Conrail got to rub elbows with some pretty interesting railroads during it's life span, and the Chessie System was one of them. Here Conrail train MECI waits to go west on the former EL while a Chessie eastbound with Western Maryland GP-9 6401 passes on the joint CR/B&O Warwick to Akron line. CR U33C 6872 is a former Erie Lackawanna unit on home rails, but that WM chop nose geep is far from the WM. Today CSX still uses the tracks the Chessie train is on, the EL is long gone.
