Interesting Jacket on the person you see with the headphones in the first section of your video!

Also, at 1:47 in your rear view ride, you'll see a man emerge from behind the train, carrying a red flag, wearing a high-viz vest (so I assume he's a CTA employee). What's his job?
I know the CTA has a few manned control towers at certain junctions. This is where the Brown Line and Red Line meet and the brown line has to cross 3 tracks. This is one of the manned towers but I don't know what he was doing. There seems to always be CTA employees on the tracks doing work or inspections.

I don't work for the CTA so I don't have any inside information.

Only the SSB will send two trains in the same direction in this way.
Actually, it is also done in Taiwan. It requires approx. 10km long blocks with crossovers at each end, as well as no oncoming trains (obviously), so it can't be done on high volume routes with trains going in both directions. It can be done on routes when the traffic at certain times is largely going in one direction (either up or down direction, to use British terminology).

The diesel engine is old and most probably past its designed lifetime

Agreed. But is it quite 320kph? It doesn't feel that fast. If you look at the one from China, it feels like 300kmh. It's different views in that video, so maybe that's why.

Is this a normal scenario? Both trains are in service and on schedule?

Very cool video non the less

The fascinating part about that Duplex race was the filmer's hand, being the only featured aspect that wasn't steady

I don't think it was that bad, but what I noticed is that most of the people didn't realize what they were witnessing. Didn't even glance.
