Shout out to the Metra Rock Island District line


On Thursday, 27 June 2013, during the brief but intense storm the evening before the Hawks parade, the Rock Island District Metra train encountered a tree at 89th and Ashland. I am writing to commend the Metra staff and other helpful community members who took charge of the situation. They worked together to quickly and safely move commuters onto another train within an hour, clear the tree from the tracks, and restore service in a timely and efficient manner.


(I sent this to the editor of the Beverly Review, but also wanted to show off my photographs from this very exciting affair.)
