The Western Avenue Blue Line stop in Bucktown.
That’s a great facade that I hadn’t noticed before. Not too many left like that. One of my favorites is Wilson– the old arcade building won’t be around for too much longer, as the station is being rebuilt soon. Wilson also has some interesting history as a former transfer station and yard, with a fair amount remaining in the abandoned platforms and some of the girders for the old yard tracks.
Drew, thanks for the tip! I’ll check out that station in the near future.
