Metra coach yard switcher at work. Western Avenue station. Chicago Illinois USA. October 2006.
I took this photo looking west one morning, from the Metra Western Avenue commuter rail station in the city of Chicago Illinois. A Metra EMD SW 1500 yard switcher, is seen moving a cut of commuter coaches from the shop building to a siding. The Metra California Avenue coachyard is a short distance from the Western Avenue station.
