CLTV now saying over 100 people taken to area hospitals.

Wandeljw is the only A2Ker I know of who heads out in that direction. Check in soon, JW.

That line and station used to be part of my commute.

After the blizzard of 1998, the electrics went bad on one of the elevated portions further out from the loop, and the ran two or three trains over it (destroying the electrics on each of the trains) before they figured out that something was wrong.

Doesn't surprise me at all. My experiences with CTA were sketchy (like people falling out of overstuffed buses with completely fogged windows when the doors opened).

Didn't affect my commute one bit. I first learned about it this morning listening to the radio.
