Westbound Metra commuter train approaching North Kilbourn Avenue. Chicago Illinois USA. April 2006.
I had taken this photograph on Chicago's Westside in April of 2006. A fast moving Metra commuter train headed for Elburn Illinois, is racing past North Kilbourn Avenue. Just north and east of this location, is a Chicago Transit Authority bus and maintenance facility. Notice the CTA markings and "Mail Car" markings on the side of the cargo van at the leval crossing. This is an example of one of the "In House" support vechicles working for the transit agency.
