North Ravenswood and West Thome

In West Rogers Park, on the Metra tracks above North Ravenswood and West Thome (just southeast of Misericordia), a pedestrian was fatally struck by a train at around 5:00 P.M., causing in lengthy delays for Metra passengers. When service resumed at approximately 8:15 P.M., several trains sped noisily past my neighborhood with horns blaring in intervals shorter than usual.

West Ridge Dominick's Progress Report

I took a peek inside the building yesterday. The interior lights were on, but nobody was home, and there were no work trucks either. Perhaps they went out for lunch, as it was around 12:00 PM.
