Central Electric Railfan's Association May 1990 Charter train at the Metra Electric vermont Street Station. Blue Island Illinois., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo way back in May of 1990.
Gee. Has it actually been 21 years already?
I was enjoying an all day excursion over the Metra electric / ex Illinois Central commuter lines with the Central Electric Railfan's Association. The trip traveled over all three of the former Illinois Central electrified routes.
This photo was taken at the Vermont Street terminal in south suburban Blue Island Illinois.
The old station here was eventually demolished during the 1990's, and replaced with a newer facility.
