It is a busy place, with a stopped westbound freight, an oncoming (eastbound) freight locomitive in the distance, a tied-down "pig" (piggyback) train, and to our right a westbound Metra bilevel commuter train is pulling into the Hanson Park station.|

This train is so long that I was not able to get a photograph of the entire train in one shot.
The Red Unit train and the Blue Unit train alternate years on their routes and change their programming (and performers) on a two-year cycle. The Blue Unit train appeared in Chicago in November of 1998 and is scheduled to return in November of 2000. The Red Unit train appeared in Chicago in November of 1999 and is scheduled to return in November of 2001.
