South Shore train leaving Randolph St. in Chicago

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_eNUCYIvZ8&feature=endscreen&NR=1

As the train pulls out on the far right is the two tracks coming out form the underground Illinois Central terminal on the other side of Randolph Street.  The South Shore Line tracks are five and you will notice the tracks converge to one single track exiting the terminal.  We have modeled this exactly as shown on the prototype.  Then that single track joins the IC 4+ tracks wide right of way that continues for several miles.  We only have three tracks at this point.

Enjoy the video.  It is fairly new because the South Shore Line cars are the new types built in the 80s and we are modeling the 50s.  Also now the entire terminal is underground and a major park has been built over the terminal.
