Trains At Canal Street In Downtown Chicago July 14, 2011

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

Sorry about how long this video is. I did not want to upload this video in parts. The next thing I did after watching trains at the Amtrak yard near 21st Street was go to canal Street. This is one place I have always wanted to railfan my entire life. I finally got the chance to do so. Ross (94amtrak), his dad, & I headed over to watch trains here. I was more then pleased with the number of Metra,Amtrak, & CTA “L” trains I caught. We were only here for about an hour & half & this is how much I saw! Ross & I liked the location so much we went to canal street a few hours before I had to leave on the eastbound Amtrak Capital Limited on July 18th. That will be a video I will upload in the future I strongly recomend Canal Street to any railfan who visits Chicago. In this video you will also see Metra F40PH #163 which I caught at Canal Street at 11:57 in the video. The next video from my Chicago area trip will be of the Metra Electric.

Vintage Grand Trunk Western Trains In Chicago 1989

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Here we have a inbound GTW train arriving from Michigan, see if you can count how many cars go around the gates we are standing in Evergreen Park,IL. Next up we are at Alsip,Illinois notice again how many cars go around the gates before this train headed for Michigan comes roaring by with his nice M3R1 ! Then we are another location where we see a Westbound CN and a Eastbound GTW at the same time the CN has a nice Airchime M3H. Then we see the Eastbound with a nice Leslie S3LR0 horn.
