'L' Rapid Transit System

This 'L' is run by the Chicago Transit Authority and is the second largest Rapid Transit System in the United States, after the New York City Subway System.
Although the 'L' gets its nickname from being elevated, not all of the total mileage is elevated. Parts of it is on the grade and parts are underground. I just found this interesting how some of Train actually moves above the streets, automobiles, and the people.


  1. what sitcom used to show part of the train in the background??? Scott would know!!!

  2. I used to know.....but all I can say is I remember the shot of the train....sorry.

  3. I remember the 'L' from when I was on a business trip to Chicago eons ago. It also runs along the highway from O'Hare. We had to drive under it to get to McCormack Center each day.
