As I was riding Red Cap out to my train in Chicago Union Station – I recorded the Charter Club private rail cars. I’m not sure which Amtrak train they were on back of or where they were heading.
I first recorded Charter Club private rail cars from afar at their home base of Milwaukee Wisconsin. Since that time – Milwaukee Intermodal Station’s train barn has undergone a top to bottom refurbishment. Some of that work is visible in the video. Rail cars used to sit outside – now they have a covered parking spot.
