    Chicago South Shore Train: First Light Photo. There is a trolley museum in my area called the Fox River Trolley Museum. They've converted old train cars into electric trolley cars and offer weekend rides. This is an image from an old relic on the property, unused of course.

Old train... Don't know where this old beauty is, but I do know you'll see a lot of these past the off ramp/two-laning... :)

Chicago train yard. ~ I LOVE this picture! My dad, uncles, & some of my cousins all worked for the railroad. At that time it was known as Chicago & Northwestern line (C & NW), then it was sold to Metra. I miss the old yellow & green color scheme...

I tried to track the history of this pin, but there were too many heinous obstacles. I'm pinning it here so that I can follow-up later. It's a lovely pic. Let me know if you find more information!

    I believe this is the L line in Chicago. Googled Chicago old trains, found same photo on that site.

    Thanks, Debbie :) When I first started with Pinterest I was (am) a bit hyper-sensitive about attribution. It's almost impossible to control on this site. But at least we have a clue thanks to you. I'll check it out! Again, thank you.

    Your welcome, : )

Dining car. Not many travel by train in the U.S. these days and that is too bad. I have fond memories of taking a train with my mother and brother to Washington D.C. several times when I was young.

... nothing like the luxury of an old train: velvet, wood, mouldings, paintings, carved detail, lamps, carpet, porcelain, crystal...
