Amtrak, CTA From on High

amtrak-hiawatha-on-june-20-2010

Some of the more interesting railfanning that you can do is from the observation deck of Willis Tower, formerly known as Sears Tower.

From the observation deck, you have an expansive view of the routes used by Amtrak in and out of Chicago Union Station as well as the coach yard and engine service facility.

Yes, the trains look rather small and it helps to have a good telephoto lens if you wish to make photographs.

Shown here is a Hiawatha Service train arriving at Union Station from Milwaukee as a Chicago Transit Authority train passes overhead after having just crossed the Chicago River on June 20, 2010.
