Mars depot. An out of this world commuter rail destination in Chicago Illinois.

Yes it's true folks. Believe it or not...You can take a Metra train to "Mars"!
This commuter rail station is located on north Oak Park Avenue just south of west Grand Avenue, on Chicago's northside.
The stations unusual name,comes from the fact that it is located immediately adjacent to the
M&M Mars Candy Factory. This commuter flagstop depot, is located on the Metra -Canadian Pacific railroad line to Elgin Illinois. Prior to the year of 1985, this was the former Milwaukee Road mainline.
