Westbound Metra express commuter train speeding through the Hanson Park depot. Chicago Illinois USA. March 2007.

Stand back!
I took this photo looking east from the south platform, at the Metra Hanson Park commuter rail depot. The ground leval crossing signals began ringing at the wooden crosswalk, and I took My safe position alongside the fence. Soon the headlight of a fast approaching commuter train appeared, and it was quickly over too soon as this express train raced through the depot near north Central Avenue. Prior to 1985, this was the former Milwaukee Road mainline.
