COMMUTER RAILROADS IN THE 1970'S
Photos and tickets from Chicago's commuter railroads, prior to RTA and Metra unification.
A teen with a Kodak Instamatic camera during the 1970's was not able to take the quality photos possible with a 35 mm camera, or a digital camera. But some of these black and white photos do show some equipment and scenes, which can no longer be seen in the Chicago area.
