Chicago's Metra Commuter Rail system recently uploaded this exceptionally cool cab ride video covering the entire Milwaukee District from Chicago's Union Station to Fox Lake, IL. This is a former MILW line. Just out of Union Staton, that's the former C&NW you see on the trestle above on its approach to Northwestern Station and that's Western Avenue at about 7:00 where you see the MILW's Tower A-2 and the C&NW's "west line' curving and crossing the MILW. At 12:30 is Tower A-5 at Pacific Jct. where the MILW's mainline from the west (aka the C&I) crosses. At 21:00 is Mayfair where the C&NW's triple-track Northwest Line crosses. A brick tower once stood to the right, having been removed several years ago. At 42:30 we're at Techny, IL and that's a C&NW freight line on that beautiful truss bridge above. Rondout Tower is seen at 1:00:00 where the MILW crosses the EJ&E. The pedestrian bridge above is on the former North Shore right-of-way. We leave the MILW mainline at Rondout and proceed up the line to Fox Lake. Lots more to see here. My apologies for my references to the old roads - these are how I knew them when I lived in Chicago 40 years ago.
