It has to be Midway(orange) or Kimball(brown) in Chicago, since only these two stations have 3 tracks at the terminus.

Then it is definitely Kimball station, the roof at Midway is different, and IIRC the terminus tracks end at the same place just past the station (unlike track 2 in the pic).

Thanks, but you narrowed it down to those two, so it was easy for me. I think that you should get it.

It's real metro - the platform looks only as if it were low, in fact it's high.

Yeah, scored two times, going for the hattrick! Recognized a light rail tram in the background and thought immediately of the exported BN-trams from Belgium to Manilla in the eighties. After that, i just compared the station on the image with other pictures on Wikipedia. Finally, the 3-rail layout helped me finding the station on Google Earth..

A new one, cropped a bit to make it harder. Good luck!
