Date Photographed

29 June 1998

Photos of rail equipment seen as the Nebraska Zephyr passes through the Eola and West Chicago yards, enroute back to the Illinois Railway Museum in East Union (Illinois).

The Chicago Burlington & Quincy and later the Burlington Northern and Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroads use the term "Dinky" to refer to a commuter passenger train.

The Metra rail system is formally known as the Northeast Illinois Regional Commuter Railroad Corporation. They have maps, schedules, fares, online ticket ordering, and some photos on their World Wide Web site at http://www.metrarail.com. Well worth a visit.

Bill Vandervoort maintains an extensive collection of Metra Railfan Pages at http://hometown.aol.com/metrafan/mainmet.html. Detailed track maps, historical information, rosters, and photographs are included. Lisa M. Schlottman maintains Lisa's Metra Pictures Web site with a delightful collection photographs and sharing of personal experiences at http://fly.to/metra/. Both sites are well worth a visit or three.
