Having made a small fortune investing in the future of transportation back in my day, I am amused to see what’s come of trains in this century. Splendid to see the old track laid for the Chicago & Evanston Railroad in the 19th century is still in service for the Purple Line. I also quite approve of the little merchant stands at platform level for Metra commuters heading downtown.

Odd name, yet delicious. In fact, I imagined I might on some occasion make a return visit to this “Upstairs Cafe.”
