Don't expose your keys and why Amazon is awesome!

So I had a weird number pop up on my SkypeIn today and answered. It was a pretty cool sounding dude from Amazon called Ty. He said he’d sent me an email about a security breach on my account and hadn’t heard anything back.

Caption: “An eastbound Milwaukee Road freight led by GP40 2005 heads into Bensenville yard on March 22, 1981. Note the left-hand running; back then, Milwaukee trains ran ‘wrong main’ east of Bryn Mawr due to left-handed running on the Chicago and Northwestern via trackage rights from Bryn Mawr to Shermer. The caboose of a westbound train has just cleared Irving Park Road.”

North Shore Line Electroliner train northbound on the Chicago L at Wabash Avenue.

The cross-street here is Harrison Street; today this intersection is very different due to the realignment of the L and the presence of Columbia College.


Date unknown; the car on the left appears to be a Plymouth Savoy from the 1957-1959 series.
