Westbound Metra commuter local at sunset. Franklin Park Illinois USA. Early June 2009.
I took this end of the day sunset photo after work one evening, in Franklin Park Illinois during early June of 2009. All the passengers of this Metra commuter train enroute to Elgin Illinois, have either boarded or disembarked at the Metra , Franklin Park commuter rail station. The locomotive engineer has just completed the air brake test, and the locomotive's engine block has began to rumble. The train is viewed preparing to head off in to the sunset, over the former Milwaukee Road mainline.
