  • Quiet, Sleepy Amtrak Cascades Train #518 to the Frequent Vancouver SkyTrain

    This is Part 4 of my 2018 Pacific Northwest Up-to-Date Trip. I return to King Street Station at 6:12, after getting the 3 new Link Stations, a little early by my standards. I’m feeling a quite tired (my body thinks its 9:12) and my technology is starting to die. I eat the Gyro plate I’ve purchased […]

  • Seattle has a Crowded Subway – the new University Link and Angle Lake Extensions

    This is Part 3 of my 2018 Pacific Northwest Up-to-Date Trip I take King County transit Rapid Ride Bus Route F, the relatively short ride to Tukwila International Blvd–(15 Photos). There I head up the escalators to the Angle Lake-bound platform. I notice new Got Wheels? take the elevators disks painted on the ground, and signs that […]

  • Amtrak Cascades from Portland to the rebuilt Tukwila Station via Port Defiance

    This is Part 3 of my 2018 Pacific Northwest Up-to-Date Trip I leave the Society Hostel at 11:15 with my luggage and started walking north the few blocks to Union Station. I pass Union Station/NW 5th & Gilsan–(2 Photos) and then some northbound trains curving around the curve just north of Union Station/NW 6th & Hoyt–(3 Photos).   I […]

  • Sunrise over the Tilikum Crossing – The New MAX Orange Line to Milwaukie

    This is Part 2 of my 2018 Pacific Northwest Up-to-Date Trip With the time change I wake up at the Society Hotel early, a little before 6:00am. I have my room until 11:00am (I’m taking the Noon Amtrak Cascades Train northbound) and decide to just get dressed, eat a granola bar and go since according […]

  • 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 […]

  • A Good Friday Day-Trip to Kalamazoo (by Car)

    Louise and I have formed a little tradition of trying to go and work somewhere like a coffee shop together when I have a holiday off from work for a long weekend when we have no other plans. Good Friday (March 30, 2018) was one of these days and we decided to take a day […]

  • 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 […]

  • Driving back from Thanksgiving in Syracuse via Rochester and Erie

    This past Thanksgiving Louise and I drove (for the second straight year) to and from my grandmother’s house in Syracuse. Taking the Lake Shore Limited we’ve considered but in order to get a Roomette would be over $900 total and even going round-trip coach I was seeing prices of $400 to $500. With the price […]

  • 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 […]
