This is all about trains and train stories only for those who are interested.
Hobby trains too. Very exciting for some and expensive from all over the world.
My next thread will be how this all started about the train
Oh, have I got a whopper of a story to tell. This was also at Great Lakes, and there were about 40-45 people waiting for a Metra train, and we'd been told to go to Track 1 to wait for the train, so we did, and when the train turned that curve, boy did we get a nasty surprise-- train was on Track 2, and we were PISSED. I was the last one to board after getting to the other side, and I pointed to the electronic sign that had announced the Track one switch and told the conductor that SOMEBODY messed up good, and by the time we got to to Fort Sheridan, the mistake had been fixed. Pretty sure somebody got canned for that.

I doubt anyone would lose their job because the train arrived on a different track than was posted.

There's probably very few operable railroad wig wags out there in the USA. You can find them operating in museums.
