Southbound Metra commuter rail train speeding through Northbrook Illinois. June 2008.
A southbound Metra express commuter train is seen passing under the Union Pacific RR ex Chicago & NorthWestern freight cut off line near Techny Illinois. The train is racing southbound enroute to Chicago Union Station on a hot morning in June of 2008.
This action was photographed on the Canadian Pacific ex Milwaukee Road commuter mainline to Fox Lake Illinois. This line also hosts the many Amtrak Chicago to Milwaukee Wisconsin Hiawatha service regional passenger trains, as well as the Chicago to Seatle Washington Amtrak Empire Builder long distance passenger train.
