Eastbound Metra empty coach train leaving the California Avenue coach yard. Chicago Illinois USA. June 2007.

I took this behind the scenes photo looking northwest, from the Metra Western Avenue station on Chicago's near northside. The inbound Metra seen here, has just had it's servicing and maintenance completed, and is now heading to Chicago Union Station, to be ready for the evening rush hour operations in a few hours. Empty coach transfer trains, and light engine movements to and from Chicago Union station, are an everyday sight here at the Western Avenue Metra commuter rail station.
Western Avenue station, is located on North western avenue just south of west Hubbard Street in the city of Chicago IL.
