Sessoms in Chicago

It’s all fun and games for the Sessoms family who took the Capital Limited from Baltimore to watch their daughter play in a basketball tournament. All games aside, Chicago is one of the country’s busiest stations, serving more than 3 million travelers in fiscal year 2012.  In fact, the state of Illinois has 56 trains every day running through the state.


Amtrak challenged Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York, to leave New York and capture #AmtrakStories from across the country. For 31 days, we’ll share one new portrait and story each day on our blog in celebration of the customers who ride America’s Railroad.
