Dave, good plan.  Will hop on 3rd car headed to Union Station on the 4:23 from Bartlett.  Will watch for you on the Itasca platform.

Dave, not sure how this works, but giving it a try.  Nice pictures.   Are you headed to Active Trans meeting Jan 18 or LCI meeting Jan 23.  Probably going and by Metra if I do.  Terry

Yeah, I'm good at planning a bike ride, not always good at following through however. I need a cool ride photo like yours... Someone I knew took some nice photos last year but they were lost when his computer crashed.
