So this past weekend was Lollapaloza, and I would like to know if anyone riders or employees got to experence the Lolla crowd? Adding to this on Sunday a kid was playing on the train tracks in front of the Wilmette Depot. They tried to deny him boarding but he managed to slip on, so the train called UP commuter control to have a special agent meet the train upon arrival downtown. Any one experience something similar?

I once saw a Metra conductor try to reprimand a person who crawled under the train I was on to get to the boarding side, saying he was going to get turned in to Amtrak police downtown. But he just ran off the train at the next stop. This was over twenty years ago.
