Metra 157 Leaving Glen Ellyn

Image by Mike Miley
Taken in Glen Ellyn IL looking north east as the train heads downtown Chicago (to the right). For those not from the area, this line runs on opposite sides than most expect. So this train is on the north most track but is going east to the right.

What you can’t see is that my back is to the Illinois Prairie Path.. the former right of way for the Chicago, Aurora, and Elgin interurban line.

    Very nice Mike! You did a great job of conveying high speed motion in this one.

    Thanks Pete. Here is the funny part… it’s barely moving at this point. Certainly it’s less than 20mph. The station it is leaving is just to the left of the shot so it was accelerating but not yet to speed. I’m just thrilled that I got anything to turn out with a 1/15th exposure.
