For those of you that haven't seen it, my webshots page (see signature) contains various transportation-related photos. I have some Metra photos included in the "Chicagoland passenger trains" and "Chicago-type area photos" albusm.

They're not the best quality photos as I took these with my cell phone camera, but I have two shots of cab car 8592 on its first day of service on BNSF. I have other photos of Metra as well.

MetraBNSF, when were you in Downers Grove? I seem to recall a couple other railfans here in the past week.

I took all of those pictures at various times last year. Several of the pictures were from Brookfield when the new Congress Park crossovers were being installed. I have more pictures that I will be adding soon.
