CTA Skokie Swift train sparking. Skokie IL. Sept 2009.
I photographed this digital live sound video back in September of 2009.
A fast moving southbound Chicago Transit Authority Skokie Swift train, runs by the Oakton Street railroad CTA yellow line railroad crossing in downtown north suburban Skokie Illinois USA.
Notice the train's high pitched electronic peanut whistle blowing, and the sparks arching off of the third rail at speed. This video was photographed at dusk.
