|The train is coming. Woot! Woot!|
For this trip we came as filmmakers for the St. Matthews Catholic Church SeptemberFest Film Festival. The train ride from the suburb we were staying at to Chicago was going to take 50 min. We first had to decide which station we were going to leave from: Roselle via the Milwaukee District/West Line or Glen Ellyn via the Union Pacific/West Line. They were both equal distance. We decided to depart from Roselle with arrival into Union Station in Chicago.

It only cost $10.50 for a round trip ticket. Sharee and I settled into the lower level of the train and we were off. This train was on time and was on a schedule. It was Friday morning with commuters going to work, running errands, or just visiting the city like us. Wi-Fi was accessible to those who had laptops or tablets. The train was clean and very well maintained.
