It's become a relatively common sight this summer: CTA weekend workers strip naked the rail bed adjacent to a north Red Line rail station, and then proceed to rebuild it -- all accomplished in just over 50 hours.
But no matter how commonplace it may be, it's still a startling sight to behold. These photos from around noon on Saturday at Berwyn attest to that. Last weekend, workers rebuilt the southbound track; this weekend it the northbound tracks. The stationhouse and platform will be closed and refurbished Oct. 5 through Nov. 16.
