Arriving at the Highlands
August 14, 2008. Hinsdale, Illinois.
A Metra commuter train rolls west into the Highlands station on the BNSF's Chicago Subdivision during the evening commuter rush. The Chicago Subdivision, also known as the "Race Track," is a triple track line running from Chicago, Illinois to Aurora, Illinois. The line hosts Amtrak and Metra passenger trains, as well as BNSF freight trains, and sees probably around 150+ trains a day.
