Just finished booking a day trip on Amtrak to Chicago. Traveling from Waterloo to Chicago and back in late January. Boarding the Capitol Limited in Waterloo at 0530 and arriving in Chicago at 0830. Hopping Metra up the "Milwaukee-North" line to do some railfanning in the afternoon and then hitting downtown in the evening for some street photography. Bringing the Pennsylvanian back home, which departs Chicago at 0100 and arrives in waterloo at 0530. We're all traveling for less than $25 apiece round-trip, which is a deal any way you look at it. As an added bonus, we also get to ride on the last eastbound Pennsylvanian out of Chicago before it is cut back to Pittsburgh. We're packin' plenty of film, so you can be assured of a full photo essay upon my return.
