Cottage Grove Ave.

After six further stations south of Roosevelt, the Green Line splits into two branches, with one going to East 63rd-Cottage Grove (old Jackson Park Service), and the other, to Ashland/63rd (old Englewood Service).

The eastern Branch of the Green Line was strengthened and modernized a few years ago, and in that process it was cut back from its former Jackson Park terminal. 

A train waits at Cottage Grove in this view for its journey into downtown and beyond.  It will utilize the two legs of the Loop over Wabash and then Lake, and then will continue out to Harlem/Lake.
