The freeze is coming and no working station for riders

Sorry folks, it’s been a while. Been super busy at work and nothing interesting has been happening on the train… But I have to write this article to voice my concern. Hopefully, Metra get to see this and does something about it.

I get on at the North Chicago train station occasionally and for some months now I have been noticing that the station is closed and now that the big freeze is about to come people will need a place to shelter.

With winter storm Blanche on the way bringing feet of snow with it and the temps already in the 30-40 degree range, customers will need a place to get out of the weather. Currently we are getting rainy days and people have to stand outside cold and wet in these low temperatures and windy days. Of note, there are several elderly people who use this train station on a daily basis.

This is all people currently have while they wait for the train at the North Chicago station, a concrete picnic table that get’s super cold or just stand in the wind and freeze.

I will also be sending these into the local news papers, hopefully something gets done quickly.
