A string of 2600s on the Lake-Dan Ryan route are passing over two suburban Metra commuter trains on March 25, 1992. The bridge, just east of the Clinton station and now replaced with a newer structure, carries "L" trains over the approach to the Ogilvie Transportation Center. The Metra Milwaukee-West Line actually operates parallel and adjacent to the Lake Street "L" for about 10 miles. (Photo by Art Peterson)

Several North-South routings are possible via the "L" or subway. Early in the morning on September 26, 1990, a work train accidentally knocked over several car lengths of third rail in the State Street Subway. It was repaired by the early afternoon, but in the meantime North-South Route trains were rerouted via the Loop, allowing for this encounter of a northbound Englewood-Howard "A" train (right) and a southbound Lake-Dan Ryan "B" train (left) at the Lake/Wabash curve.
