This week we are in the Chicago area working a few stores & I lucked out grabbing Metra’s Rock Island Heritage unit crossing the Calumet River/Canal in Blue Island Illinois. This is a shot I have been wanting to get for a long time & the Rock Island unit made it even that much better!! 4/14/2020

Two Metra's meet at Blue Island.

Portal views of the bridges were caught by a photo by Kim Piersol of Rock Island #655, an E9A. (Found in a Rock Island posting.)
