Conveyer belt.

Equipment used during transload of coal off the NS (NJI&I) from hoppers to trucks to service the University of Notre Dame’s power plant. ND was once serviced directly by Conrail (ex-PC, NYC) but when NS took over Conrail it embargoed service over the 3.2 mile line to ND and forced ND to use trucks. ND since then moved mainly to natural gas for its power plant so it is unclear how much use this transload operation still sees.
