Nice shots, Shawn. Chicago area sure provides a wealth of railroad watching and photographing opportunities.

South Shore is good transportation (although they could do with more comfortable seats for the longer rides). They're economical, reliably on time, and frequent. Their cars and tracks are good for more speed than they now use; I'd like to see them fence some right-of-way and put in four-quadrant protection at the crossings, and kick the speed up to 80mph over much of the line. I've seen them hit close to 90mph late at night eastbound between Dune Park and Michigan City, and they handled it with no difficulty.
Getting thrown out of railroad stations since 1979!
