Eastbound Metra local commuter train dispatched to the "Wrong / Westbound" mainline due to heavy train traffic. Riverside Illinois. December 2013.

I took this photograph last week Sunday, in west suburban Riverside Illinois.

It was a very busy time that day on the BNSF Railway's 3 track Chicago to Aurora commuter line, as this eastbound Metra local enroute to Chicago Union Station, was dispatched on to the "wrong" or normally "Westbound" mainline, due to heavy freight train traffic on this bitterly cold blustery winter day with outside temperatures in the teens.
