Yep, I go there when I railfan in Indiana(even on weekdays), I always park in the Gravel lot east of the Ogden Dunes South Shore Station off of US 12 between the South Shore, and the NS tracks.vxla wrote:Is Ogden the best place to catch the NS line on weekends when day-trippers to the Dunes are plentiful?
Discussion related to commuter rail and rapid transit operations in the Chicago area including the South Shore Line, Metra Rail, and Chicago Transit Authority.
The "All American Railroad Show" will be at Lyons Township High School in LaGrange on Saturday, March 25, 2017. I don't know much about it or how much will be Chicago related, but some people associated with Shore Line, CERA, and modelers of Chicago transit will be there. Fox River Trolley Museum will have a table, so I'm going.
I will have a twelve hour layover between trains in Chicago and am thinking about taking a commuter train out to a station on the BNSF racetrack to watch the action. Which station would be the best? I am thinking about La Grange Road. Are there places to sit at the station there and what about nearby restaurants? My travel partner is also a railfan but can't walk long distances. If you have a suggestion for a better station to spend the day let me know. Thanks very much for any advice/help.
