This section looks at the CTA lines which go south and southwest. After this page the scenes are
ordered beginning with some views along the South Side "L," which
hosts the Green Line's two branches. Next comes
the Orange Line, which leaves the Loop along with the
Green, and goes out to Midway Airport. The
section ends with sights along the Red Line, which comes out of
Dearborn subway to run mainly in the median of the Dan Ryan Expy.
This scene is from an outbound Orange Line train. We have just
recently left the Green Line and South Side "L" structure. The
tracks branching left allow for access to and from the Red Line Dan Ryan service.
This connection has not been in regular passenger service since 1993.
An inbound train from Midway is just ahead, on the newest heavy rail
construction on the CTA.
