Uh, I don't think the Chicago Transit Authority runs Metra, and maybe if they do at some administrative level, most Chicagoans (myself included) consider the two to be separate systems.
They are two different rail systems-- both run by CTA. Prolly where I got confused. I lived in North Loop for awhile and never took the rail out of the city. And I eat ketchup on my hot dog and order thin crust pizza....
Game Play comments:
I am having a hard time initially seeing what borders what near the loop with the El tracks above the borders. Chance to make the Orange loop more realistic and a little wider so as to view the borders in the middle there?
I was going to have a small view window of the loop station without the rails. Something like a magnifying glass but no magnifying.

The north side of the territory doesn't come into play as it has 2 impassables. I had outlined the lake that allowed to see the territory division better but someone posted earlier to remove it so I did.

Glad you took joliet out.
Again I had it unmarked then went back and labeled it. Totally agree that it's better without.
Yea, that Metra train looks awesome, but, you don't have any metra lines on this map. Keep the el lines, they're much better, and I need the blue one to get to the loop.
I assume back of the yards doesn't border near west side (my home) so you may want to cover the upper corner of back of the yards with more trees.
Can I play this soon?
Back of the Yards is not accessible from West Side. It's actually adjacent to Bridgeport but that was one of the terrs I decided not to use.
Thanks for all the feedback Wolffy--
