Leaving Paulina, 1994

That quick instance where it seems everyone in the world pours out of these trains and before you know it, the train departs and all you hear is the rumble of the track and the occasional toot of the horn. Back then, the trains going out toward Kimball weren’t quite as crowded as they are now. That train line itself grew in ridership over the last twenty years. They even reinstated service to the Loop on weekends by the late nineties. That silence as you’re alone on the platform has changed now. You always have a automated voice saying ” A Brown Line train toward the Loop will be arriving shortly.”
