Today was perfect for a day trip and as I approached the Howard El, I decided to take the bus system!
After wandering through the tulips downtown, I returned on the Red Line. The workmen had scraped the gravel from a large section on the east side of the platform. This photo was taken late in the afternoon. I watched for awhile and took the 290 to Lincolnwood Mall. It was after 8PM when I returned and they were still scraping gravel on this long neglected end of the line.
