Album Info:I decided to check out Franklin Park today as I had heard that the reconfiguration of the IHB was completed. I was a bit disappointed at the train frequency and the lines of sight at the crossing itself, but I did get some good pics at other locations around the crossing. I then stopped in Berwyn for a while and then hit a few places on th way home like the BRC and the Harlem Ave Wye with the IHB in Bedford Park.
