  • Chicago-Union Station is Rebuilt with Tons of New Photos

    I made a page for Chicago-Union Station, way back in 2008 in an old format that didn’t acknowledge Metra, and pretty much stopped updating it. I got into the bad habit of embedding photos from trip reports through Chicago-Union Station (I plan to continue to do this in trip reports of photos such as lines […]

  • Metra La Salle Street and the new White Sox Station

    Here’s another Chicago Metra update, getting Chicago area stations out of my archive, that brings another Downtown Chicago terminal onto the web: La Salle St. Station–(18 Photos) 35th St. / “Lou” Jones–(23 Photos) Enjoy!  

  • The Hammond SLE Station

    I don’t particularly like doing single station updates (without it being a one day transit adventure), but there’s no other good place for this update. The last not-uploaded South Shore Line Photo essay is of Hammond–(47 Photos), which I visited the same day I biked to the Hammond-Whiting Amtrak Station, did the South Chicago Branch […]

  • Metra Down in Blue Island

    I’m trying to get all the photos I’ve ever taken in Chicagoland up on the web (I’m getting very close), this update is from a trip I took down to Blue Island about 6 years ago, Metra Electric Down, Rock Island District back north: Burr Oak–(34 Photos) Blue Island (Metra Electric)–(11 Photos) Praire St./Blue Island–(11 […]

  • Update: 2 Winnetka and 2 Evanston Metra UP North Stations

    I’m currently trying to clear my not-uploaded/written archive of all Metra Stations I’ve visited, here are the 4 more remaining on the Union Pacific North Line: Hubbard Woods–(11 Photos) Winnetka–(13 Photos) Central St./Evaston–(19 Photos) Main St./Evanston–(16 Photos) Enjoy! The main goal of this is both to finish as much Metra content as I can, and […]

  • Update: Crystal Lake and Pingree Road

    I’m trying to clear everything Chicago and Metra related out of my vast archive from previous trips. One main reason is that it makes writing up more recent adventures so much easier when I have the framework of stations I’ve already visited. This update is two stops I visited back on October 30, 2011: Crystal […]

  • The Manhattan and the New Lenox Metra Stations

    My first South Shore Line bike trip after I moved to South Bend back in June of 2016 consisted of me taking (with someone who had a gas powered bicycle that stank and shouldn’t have been allowed in the bike car) the weekend Inbound Express train at Hammond (still need up to write that station), […]

  • Pace Bus 802 to a Snowy ride on the UP West Line back to Chicago

    This is final section (part 3 or 3) of February 17th, 2018’s adventures on the the BNSF Railway and UP West Line. After getting on Pace Bus 802 at the Aurora Transportation Center, we leave on time but it’s a slow ride. It’s snowing fairly hard at this point and the driver is definitely focused […]

  • Getting 9 out of 21 Stations on the 5-10 Minutes late Metra BNSF Railway from Berwyn to Aurora

    This is the part 2 (of 3) of February 17th, 2018’s adventures. After getting off Pace Bus 307 I get my photo essay of Harlem Avenue–(19 Photos). I then start walking briskly down Windsor Avenue to Berwyn–(30 Photos). There I get my pictures and head to the shelter on the outbound platform. A man is sitting […]

  • Riding the Green Line out to Oak Park to start a Metra Adventure

    This is part 1 of what will be a 3 part series on my February 17th Metra adventures. This past weekend, Louise and I spent in Chicago so Louise could go to a one-day conference on Saturday. I decided to spend the day doing another Metra Weekend Pass adventure. Looking at schedules I realized that […]
