Wow! Where do I start? I would first suggest One of the bridges at Adams and Wabash on the Loop L. The Roosevelt overpass over Amtrak and Metra. The garage on the southeast corner of Lake and Well Streets overlooking Tower 18, Depending on how powerful a camera try the corner of Archer and Wentworth, which can be reached from the Red line existing at the north end of the Cermak station. There you can get the Orange an Red lines with the Chicago skyline in the background. Armitage on the Brown line you can get good shots of the Brown and Purple lines, as well as a good view of the Red line trains entering and leaving the subway portal. Sheridan Rd station of the Red line a curved station is also good, as well as the Sedgwick stop on the Brown Purple lines another curved station is also good.

Mai I also suggest I trip on the Metra Electric (IC) from the Randolph Michigan Ave station on the Blue Island branch to Blue Island, and cross the street (Vermont St) and return to the Loop on the Metra Rock Island to LaSalle St station.
