The underbelly of the CTA Red and Purple Line Express tracks:



The tracks above me lead to Howard, and Wilmette, IL (Purple Line Local, after Howard). The tracks to my right are the outbound Red and Purple Line Express tracks to 95th/Dan Ryan and the Loop. The Purple Line Express only runs during rush hours on M-F, and terminates at Howard on weekends.

That train was still at Rogers Park when the picture was taken.
