I understand. One thing I didn't explain is that it's an unused route now. The photo shoot was for the oldest boy's senior pictures.

Hey, LoveBlue!! Did you see the digital train departures/arrivals @ CUS when you were there? I just saw them for the first time yesterday, and it caught me by surprise. However, they ARE a nice addition, though.

I've seen them (I'm guessing their the same) in the Metro Lounge, but never paid attention when walking around the station.

Two are for Amtrak arrivals/departures, two are the same for the Metra trains that use the place. I was actually there to see if they had put up the holiday decorations yet (They haven't, but will in a few weeks), and that's when I saw them. They were not there when I rode the Illini last May.

The brand new Track 1, almost ready for service:



As soon as it's been declared safe to use, the new Ravenswood Station will then open.
