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 and destination boards, when adding a photo to the photo page doesn’t make sense out of context). With a number of trips through Chicago-Union Station this past year, I decided it was time to rebuild Chicago-Union Station(117 Photos added) into my  current Metra station format and stop letting photos of the station pile up in my archive.

The page is now easy for me to update so on further trips through Chicago-Union Station, I can easily directly upload my new photos and not have them sit in my archive for years until I do posts like this.
