We’ve always loved the elevated trains. Our company name was inspired by them.

To us, the historic elevated tracks represent the working-class essence of Chicago. They also provide connections between different segments of society. Everybody in Chicago rides the trains—from wealthy to homeless; school children to old ladies; black, white and brown; morning, noon and night.

Here are a few of our favorite resources:

  • Chicago-L.org
    Comprehensive guide—including antique rolling stock, signage, maps and stations.
  • Elevated Chicago
    An exhibit of train-inspired paintings.
  • El Haiku
    10 haiku and one poem about the El trains.
  • Transit Chicago
    The official site of the Chicago Transit Authority.
