Yesterday I was riding to South Bend for the holiday. At Hegewisch, the conductor stepped off, unlocked a box on the platform, and collected a dayglo-yellow canvas briefcase. I later saw him with a few of these. I've never seen such before, but I'm guessing it's something like company mail or paperwork. Anybody know what this is?
