Welcome to the official Metra Trip Website. This is a site which documents all of the trips on Chicago's commuter system - Metra - that my Dad and I have taken since July 5th, 2001. While this site is mainly for that purpose, it will be gradually be becoming more about my experimentation with "Train GIFS". Please enjoy the website and updates will come as soon as I get free time.
