One of My favorite places I enjoy hanging out at and enjoying a nice session of railfanning with My camera at the ready, is the River Grove Metra commuter rail station.
This depot located on Thatcher Avenue (Cumberland) just north of Grand Avenue in northwest suburban River Grove Illinois, can sometimes be a very busy place with multiple Metra commuter trains or freight train traffic at any given time.
Sometimes it is just nice to sit on a bench and enjoy a little quiet time between train activity here occasionally as well.
