The Elgin Big Timber commuter rail station is the final stop for people traveling northwest out of the city of Chicago and a pleasant place to wait out the weather of northern Illinois.

The station was refurbished several years ago from something that resembled an above-ground bunker to its present neo-colonial styling. For those of us who live on the outer edges of suburbia, the station is a passageway to the big city.
