Exterior views of Chicago Union Station and along the Metra Electric line through Grant Park.
Metra has a map and information about the Roosevelt Road station at their official Web site. This station is located along and serves the Metra / Metra Electric and the the NICTD / South Shore Line.
Rail yards need to store a wide variety of material, typically stored in an orderly mess. Perhaps these photographs might be useful for modeling.
Harold Kept many of his photos on sites which no longer exist.
