Located in the same building as Oglvie Transportation Center, hence the name.

Rectangular island bar with a couple of tap towers, both with the same 6 beers. They had a Bourbon County promotion, but with high prices on everything. 8 oz. draft for $12 was the cheapest, up to Proprietors for $40. Plus they had the shitty balls to add tax on a one beer tab. Other than that there was a smattering of entry level craft drafts, including Lagunitas IPA, Rev Bottom Up Wit, Green Line, Metro Krankshaft, Founders Dirty Bastard. Bottles numbered only 15, including Tyranena Rocky's, Chouffe and a couple other Belgians.

The atmosphere was a little stale, modern interior with exposed industrial pipes and ductwork overhead, and train trestle pylons in the area between the bar and dining room. It was a bit sterile and contrived upscale-ish place with framed prints of the old elevated line and Buddy Guy, with piped in blues music. Some middle aged douches hit on the 20-something bartender, while others bided time until their train departed.

Skip it and go west young man... Haymarket, Au Cheval, Publican are far better beer destinations nearby.
