Digital Live Sound Video: Speeding westbound Metra rush hour express commuter train. Chicago Illinois USA. April 2009.
I photographed this digital live sound video one evening after work, in early April of 2009. I was fueling up My car at the Citgo gasoline station on the southwest corner of Northwest Highway and North Nagle Avenue, when I heard the crossing signal bells and the distant sound of an approaching commuter train at speed. Seen here crossing Nagle Avenue in Chicago's Norwood Park neighborhood, is a speeding westbound Metra rush hour express commuter train, enroute to Harvard Illinois.
This train is traveling over the Metra / Union Pacific Railroad - Northwest line.
This mainline was originally the Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad prior to 1998.
