A trip to downtown Chicago to visit a client yielded a variety of Metra locomotive photos, and some interior shots of the Norwood Park station restoration.

Cleaning and painting activities are well underway. This is the waiting room, looking north, with the doors to the ladies' restroom to the left, and to the men's restroom to the right.

Inside the station agent's office, the built-in cabinets remain, awaiting the tender-loving-care of restoration efforts. The abandoned electrical panel is to the left, and ticket windows to the right.

Inside the station agent's office, the orignial electrical cabinet seems long abandoned. Perhaps some things are best not being restored to original condition.

The effects of time, and perhaps a once-leaking roof, have taken their toll on the floor and wall modling. On the positive side, the woodwork is still there to be restored. This room is in the northwest corner of the building, and perhaps was a sitting room leading into the ladie's restroom.
