Complicated junction, with the Blue Island and South Shore also joining there, and the local and express splitting. Also, there was the prior debate why the platform was only on the west side, instead of a dual platform.Good place to have a head-on collision.

Oh ok I got it.. but before pull in and pull out were normal... now the entrance and exits are 1mph verses 10 mph.. as if there are crews working. It has never been like this before until recent

The interlocking through Kensington has a speed limit of 35MPH. Currently on track 2 there is a 10MPH speed restriction

placed by the track department. If you look down, you will see the flags.
