Digital Live Sound Video: Northbound Metra commuter locomotive running light. Glenview Illinois USA. April 2009.
I photographed this unique digital live sound video after work one evening, in April of 2009. This is a rare sight to behold in day to day Chicago to Fox Lake Illinois commuter rail operations. A single Metra MPI model MP 36PH passenger locomotive, is viewed heading northbound alongside Lehigh Avenue in north suburban Glenview Illinois.
There may have been a shortage of available locomotives at the Fox Lake terminal during the evening rush hour commuting period. This is one of those rare extra movements on the Canadian Pacific ex Milwaukee Road mainline.
