Riding the Red Line – the all-around deplorable stations

The Tribune is reporting that the CTA has signed a contract for a $57.4 million face lift for seven of “the most shabby, leaky and all-around deplorable stations on the CTA Red Line north branch.”

One of those stations is Argyle, and you can see its crumbling viaduct in the above video, one of 17 that Joe Askins shot just before heading off to grad school.

You’ll find the other videos at our Riding the Red Line playlist at YouTube.
