Hello, I am coming to the area for my son's high school graduation gift to rail fan the race track and south shore. I know that Chicago can be not a good area. We would go the racetrack Westmont and west to Aurora.
And for the south shore go no frothier west than Dunes Park.
Are these good areas to be at? And I know that you cannot use a hand held scanner in Indiana.

Thank you for your reply.
