This is a tale of two sights. The Montrose station in North Center is a pretty standard Brown Line stop with wood platforms and large artwork in the stationhouse. But on the inbound platform to the Loop, riders have a nice view of a community garden. The outbound platform? Barbed wire that lines nearby buildings. Another potential sighting: Mayor Emanuel. This is his stop and staffers say he rides the train a couple times of week.

Next up: Quincy in the Loop
