Review of Chicagos Metra DVD Railway Productions

 4.7 of 5 (3)
Chicago's Metra commuter rail system is one of the success stories of modern railroading. Carrying upwards of 300,000 passengers a day, it is a marvel of dedication and precision.

In this program, you'll get an up-close look at Metra, including visiting some areas of the system normally off limits to the public.

Some of the things that you'll see include:

*See all of Chicago's downtown stations

*Take a look at Metra's 12 routes

*Go inside the famous "Zephyr Pit" repair center

*Learn what it takes to overhaul passenger cars

*Visit historic Tower A-2 and talk to the leverman

*See how each Metra route has its own character.
