Dates:8/9/2008 - 8/9/2008
Album Info:I stayed local today and stuck to the area in and around Chicago Ridge Crossing. An IHB cop paid me a visit after a couple hours because I was standing on railroad property just beyond the fence that divides the Metra parking lot from the IHB right-of-way. Apparently one of the train crews called it in because I looked "suspicious". The cop was understanding and apologetic and just issued me a warning. However, it effectively killed another favorite train-watching spot for me. I stuck to the Ridgeland Ave grade crossing the rest of the day. All pics in this album were taken between 12 and 4pm CST.
