The Elmwood Park Illinois Metra commuter rail station. Late March 2014.

I took this photograph while out enjoying an afternoon walk recently.
Seen here near West Grand and North 75th Avenues in near northwest
suburban Elmwood Park Illinois, is the Metra Elmwood Park station.
For all of my fellow Chicago area railfan photographers, this can  be
a very busy location at times, with three mainline tracks. The
traffic varies with numerous transfer trains from the host railroad
Canadian Pacific, Norfolk Southern, Canadian National, as well
as a number of local and express Metra commuter trains here
operating over the Metra Milwaukee District mainline to Elgin
Illinois, on this former Milwaukee Road mainline.
