I will post the Metra schedule for anyone interested in taking that as a group. Horse Thief is a 16 mile ride from the brewhouse if you're thinking of riding. Also, if anyone will be driving & can take others please post here.
Ticket is bought. Let me know if you do the train Evan and I will join you.
I have my ticket, too. I'm in for the train or ride if we car pool.
I would love to attend this. Evan can you expand on what Metra train runs there and where you would be leaving from?
Kyle, the Rock Island train has stops in Beverly. (We would get off at the 103rd St stop.) The Metra station for this line is on LaSalle St between Congress and Van Buren; there are brown and blue line stops right next to it.
So is everyone planning on meeting at the metra stop downtown or do we have enough cars to carpool down there?
Hey guys, I'm still not sure if I'll be able to take the train or need to drive, it just depends on when I can skip out of work today. Here's the train schedule for the Rock Island line that leaves from the LaSalle St station at 414 S LaSalle. If you're taking the El to get there you can jump off at the LaSalle/Van Buren stop to get there. You'll be taking the Metra to the Bevery Hills 103rd St stop, which is .9 miles away from Horse Thief.
Leaving, the schedule looks like this:
Depart 103rd St 8:02/10:20/11:20
Arrive LaSalle 8:32/10:48/11:48
I'll update this once I know when I can knock off, should know by 2pm. If you know for sure what way you'll be getting there please post here so people can meet up.
I'll be taking the Metra, but will be trying to catch the 5:50 or 6:45 trains. I'm hoping for 5:50, though.
