The scene from Roosevelt Road in Chicago has changed radically in the years since a prior visit. Now, the is a multilevel parking garage to serve patrons of Whole Foods, DSW Shoes and LA Fitness, among others. There are still ‘puzzle switches’ galore and plenty of trains moving in and out of the station.

On the left is Metra # 210, a F40PHM-2, having just emerged from the wash rack. To the right is Metra #125, an F40PH-3. Yes, that iconic tower still dominates the scene from a distance. It’s quite a show.
