On the second Wednesday of each month (except January, July, August, and December), we hold a Members Meeting at Chicago Union Station 500 W. Jackson, downtown Chicago (7 pm). These meetings include multi-media presentations examining a particular aspect of railroading, such as steam locomotives, streetcars, or the history of various railroad companies.
LOCATION! Our meeting location is the Founder’s Room of Chicago Union Station at 500 W. Jackson Blvd in downtown Chicago. Parking is available at various lots including Amtrak’s garage, which has a connecting tunnel to the station and costs $21. The lot at Monroe & Jefferson (2 blocks from station) has a flat rate of $8 for in after 3 PM and out by 10 PM. Another smaller lot at 320 S. Clinton has a flat rate of $8 for in after 4 PM and out before 8 AM. The outdoor lot that you may be familiar with, next to the Amtrak Garage off Jackson, is no longer open and being converted to a bus terminal. Food and beverages are available in the station.
