Just passing through

Postby John_Perkowski » Mon Mar 27, 2017 10:50 am

Passed through Chicago last Wednesday and Thursday, by way of Midway.

Even so...

I noticed for the first time the viaduct over Clark St by Chinatown has the imprint of the NYC and the CRI&P deep in its concrete :)

I saw older gallery cars (7000 series numbers)...SMOOTH SIDED, rolling into LaSalle St.

Finally, I enjoyed the action that is Chicago passenger rail. Even WBEZ reports on Metra and CTA delays!
