Approaching Kostner Crossing

Older homes and garages of Cicero are in the background in this view at the Kostner Ave. crossing.  Unprotected "third rails" end a few feet in from the sidewalk.  From this rather primitive stretch of right of way this Blue Line train will rise to the "L" as it attends to the long and varied route out to O'Hare.  This service now operates in rush hours only, and at other times, travel out to the airport is certainly less convenient than it once was.
