Dates:9/23/2006 - 9/23/2006
Album Info:I decided to spend a few hours railfanning around the SW Side of Chicago even though heavy rain and storms came through off and on throughout the day, but I wasn't going to let that spoil my Saturday. Unfortunately some of the shot quality suffered due to the weather conditions. My day took me to stops at the IHB main at 71st Street in Bridgeview, the BRC main at 59th and Narragansett in Chicago and to Lavergne Station in Berwyn and back to 71st Street on the way back home to Chicago Ridge.
