Wintertime at the Prairie View Metra commuter rail station. Lincolnshire Illinois. Monday, February 4th, 2013., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
Seen here covered in freshly fallen lake effect snow, is the Metra Prairie View commuter rail station in far north suburban Lincolnshire Illinois.
This train station, is one of a few "Transfer Points" for my bus company that I work for. Passengers transfer here to and from my paratransit service that serves northern Cook County, to connecting First Transit buses that serv Lake County to the immediate north.
This train station serves Metra commuter trains traveling to and from Antioch Illinois, over the Canadian National Railroad's former Soo Line / Wisconsin Central RR "Northern Central" line. This route only operates Metra commuter trains Monday thru Friday.
