The classic College Avenue Metra commuter rail station. Wheaton Illinois USA. Saturday, August 14th, 2010.

A very classic and architecturally unique commuter passenger train station worth visiting in the greater Chicagoland area, is the Metra College Avenue station in far west suburban Wheaton Illinois.

This classic steam era depot, originally served commuter and local passenger trains many years ago, on the former Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad.

Today, this depot serves daily Metra commuter trains on the Metra / Union Pacific west line to Elburn Illinois.

Excuse me, but this train station was build around three years ago.

Before then, the station was only an small room with no ticket box.

They did a nice job giving to the new building the appearance of an old construction, however it is totally brand new!!!!
