Westbound Burlington Northern Railroad commuter train stopping at the LaGrange Road commuter train station. LaGrange Illinois. June 1985.

I took this lovely early summer day photo in the suburban village of La Grange Illinois. This photo was taken just east of what is todays Metra La Grange Road commuter rail station. During the 1970's and 80's...Orange diagonal reflective striping was the standard on Chicago commuter trains on some lines, prior to the creation of Metra. I had spent this lovely afternoon shopping and exploring one of My all time favorite suburban communities. It was and still is, a great place to go railfanning, shopping, or just hang out.
