Into the storm by classictrains Into the storm by classictrains
Today it rained, it sleeted, it snowed, the wind blew, traffic slowed to a crawl and Metra ran on time. Why do people drive to the city?

11 cars! Wow. I remember thinking a 5-car train was a good deal, because we'd be able to find a decent seat then back on CalTrain.

Damn, you have so many great and atmospheric shots, but I always just skimmed through your gallery instead of taking some time to actually look at them... At least this pic proves that trains are not dead on the other side of the lake, and that they have their advantages when compared to cars. Of course, they have to be reliable, which I only experienced in Japan. Here in Germany, I also travel 50km to the university and back (and also in double deckers ^^), but German trains have a reputation for not being on time...

Thanks. Metra runs remarkably close to on-time. And remember that they actual run on rails owned by freight railroads which makes it even more surprising. And they are often full.

Wow, 11 cars? The commuters never get past 6, and even that isn't too often.

What I always find interesting are the american signals, lit up in all possible colors like a christmas tree.

exactly my thought too.... from here looking East you can actually see 4 or 5 signal bridges lit up like this... I plan on going back on a clear summer evening with the longest lens I can find!
