Brown Line to Kimball

A CTA Brown Line train standing on the tracks above Randolph and Wabash while I stood on the corner reminiscing about my Trainapalooza day with my young friend Henry.

What is Trainapalooza?: 1. Circumnavigating the Loop riding Brown, Pink and Green line trains clock-wise and anti-clockwise, stopping and taking in the sights at the Washington/Wabash, Lake, Quincy and Washington/Wells stops; 2. spotting trains from above and below the tracks along Wabash Avenue; 3. getting “waves” from the conductors at the corner of Lake and Wabash; 4. riding at Metra train from the Millennium Park station to Hyde Park. Such a fun day and thank-you for the waves, kind CTA conductors!
