Metra Always has Right of Way

Walking home from the Chicago Loop. I had a chance encounter (from a safe distance) with a commuter train. Always an impressive sight from street level.
Wow - that IS impressive - actually kinda scary!

Uh ....yeah. No problem there for sure! Great shot.
April 8th, 2019  
I agree, very impressive.
April 8th, 2019  
I don't think I would want to argue with that
April 8th, 2019  
I just love your city shots! This is very nice in B/W. Great image.
April 8th, 2019  
Wow, an excellent capture!
April 8th, 2019  
Do they have to pay road tax to steam through there ?
April 8th, 2019  
That’s what we don’t have ( but need ) on the West Coast! Great capture!
April 8th, 2019  
It looks huge! great capture!
April 8th, 2019  
superb

Feel like I'm right there listening to and feeling the rumble of that train.
April 8th, 2019  
Wow I don’t remember seeing any trains at ground level like this! How scary - no barriers! We have gates that come down and lights flashing and still have accidents when people try to cross in front of the train! Wonderful image of the “monster” coming through!

What an amazing sight and capture, it does look enormous to be going through town!
April 8th, 2019  
Cool perspective, it is very imposing, perfect fit title.
April 8th, 2019  
it does look enormous close up - that looks bigger and faster than the trams we have in some areas
April 8th, 2019  
Wow, nobody is going to argue with that are they.
April 8th, 2019  
How weird to see a train travelling down the street
April 8th, 2019  
Very impressive - who would argue with that !!
April 8th, 2019  
wow, that's a big train to have on the street! Looks great in B&W

We have nothing like this where I live - impressive is the right word! Hazardous also springs to mind ...
April 8th, 2019  
Beautiful capture of this lovely train. Looks great in b&w.
April 8th, 2019

April 8th, 2019  
Wow a cool capture
April 8th, 2019  
Wow!

Fantastic street capture of the waiting people and the Metro. The
image really conveys the waiting through their body language., Great
gray tonal scale

Boy is that a train out of futuristic sci-fi! By the way, coming this summer is direct Eugene to Chicago flight. Getting tempting
April 8th, 2019

Wow a proper train in the streets!

Definitely impressive- looks downright scary to see one of those monsters traveling through a busy city street. Cool shot!
April 8th, 2019  
Cool shot and it looks wonderful in black and white. fav
April 8th, 2019  
Love the mix of people, city street and a whopping great train. I like it a lot.
April 8th, 2019  
Dramatic scene, for sure -- and I always wonder about how scary it would be to actually be crossing the track when a train is coming up!
April 9th, 2019  
Wow! That is something! And, such a nice sharp photograph. Fav
April 9th, 2019  
Grand shot...Fav
April 9th, 2019  
Hard to believe that goes right through the city.
