The station work for this northbound Hiawatha Service train is complete and the train has a clear signal just beyond the station in Glenview, Illinois.
Passenger trains are the primary rail traffic past this depot located along tracks now owned by Canadian Pacific, but once belonging to the Milwaukee Road.
Aside from Amtrak’s Hiawatha Service and the Chicago-Seattle/Portland Empire Builder, Glenview is served by Metra commuter trains between Chicago and Fox Lake, Illinois.
In fact, I had ridden to Glenview on a Metra train and was spending some time there during a layover between Amtrak trains in Chicago.
The woman on the platform is probably waiting for a Metra train as they tended to run behind the Hiawathas out of Chicago Union Station.
