abby told me about a website a while ago. i had looked at it a bit, but i have spent the whole morning glued to it, and have hardly scratched the surface. it's got to be one of my favourite sites on the internet. it's a wonder.
what is this wonderful site? it's chicago-l.org! it's got all sorts of history of the chicago L, pictures of the trains they've used over the years, pictures of stops both in service and defunct...basically, it's the ultimate repository of chicago transit trivia. this morning, i'm reading the entire history of the L system, with frequent detours to gawk at shiny train pictures and old defunct train stops.
i'm in transit geek heaven.
