Whenever there's a movie set in Chicago, there always seems to be a fight between the hero and the forces of evil on top of the el, our elevated mass transit trains (that actually run both underground and on the surface at various points). I noticed that unlike regular els, the trains in the movies always have a little platform or stage on top that the other el cars don't have.
On my way to work, I change trains at the Howard station, going from the Red Line to the Purple Line, which runs through Evanston. The Yellow Line, which has only two stops, at Howard and in Skokie, also stops there. A couple of weeks ago, I realized that the sole train used for the Skokie Swift has the movie platform on top of it. I figured this was as good a time as any to try out the camera on my new phone. Yes, I've been dragged kicking and screaming into this decade. But it's good to know that I always have a camera handy; you never know when you'll run into a movie star.
