Westbound Metra passing under the Belt Railway of Chicago. Chicago Illinois USA. April 2006.
I took this photograph looking west on Kinzie Street at the corner of North Kilbourn Avenue. A fast westbound Metra Commuter Express train, is passing under the Belt Railway of Chicago's North/ South right of way. The large brown building in the background is the abandoned "Brach's Candy Factory". This Mainline prior to the 1998 Merger and Absorbtion through the Union Pacific Railroad, is the former Chicago and Northwestern Railroad "West Line". This train is equipped with "Newer" stainless steel handicapped accessible coaches with "Large" windows. This train is bound for Elburn Illinois.
