Year 2, Day 354: 18 October 2014: They're Ba-a-a-a-ck!

My farewell to the substation crew was premature. Apparently, the CTA has added a thing or two to the honey-do list. And so, on this cold, damp weekend, the crew is back in full force, installing a drainage pipe at track level. I imagine that their thoughts on being back here again, are much like those expressed by Michael Corleone in The Godfather: Part III

Here are a few action shots of today's activities. As you can see, this is another major production, involving a lot of heavy equipment and a large crew.

Postscript: Since the substation has to be finished eventually, i've started a new construction-related blog, Watching Other People Work. I don't expect to update it nearly as often as i've done with this one, but when i see an interesting construction or demolition site, i'll snap a few pictures and post them. The first post is on the work currently underway at the newly renamed Jane Byrne Interchange.

This blog exists for one purpose: to follow the progress of the CTA substation project. Your comments relevant to that topic are very welcome.
