View from Metra

The windows of the Metra commuter rail service from Elmhurst, through which this photo was taken, are heavily tinted green. This photo is at Oak Park and shows a train dwelling at the Harlem/Lake terminal of the CTA Green Line.

The commuter line makes very limited stops (or no stops) in Chicago and one feels very remote and insulated from the neighborhoods -- in part very poor neighborhoods -- passed along the way.
