Outbound Metra afternoon express commuter train. Park Ridge Illinois. Wednsday, January 29th, 2014., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph one sunny winter afternoon last month.
A fast moving outbound Metra express commuter train heading west / northwest, has just passed the Oakton Street railroad crossing in Park Ridge Illinois.
This commuter train is traveling over the Union Pacific northwest line to Harvard Illinois. This railroad line was originally owned and operated by the former Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad in past years.
