Thursday was the third in a string of nice days that Chicago has had. I decided to watch some trains go through the Canal Street Railroad Bridge. This is a vertical lift bridge and it's neat to watch it go up when boats go through. Today, however it was time to see trains pass through.

The first picture is an amtrak train headed to Union Station

The one below shows an Union Pacific Engine passing through

Spring Has Sprung!

The warm weather of the past week finally allowed all the snow to melt and the first greenery to pop out of the ground!
