Metra Apology Received

In yesterday's mail, I got a very polite apology letter from Metra regarding the "Photographing Trains is Illegal" incident, with a reassurance that the crew in question has been interviewed and corrected. They also sent me a cap with the Metra logo on it, which was nice. I don't know if it would be a good idea for me to wear it while around the system -- say when I go to Chicago in October for a meeting, should I have any spare time -- lest someone complain that I'm pretending to work for them! It is, however, tempting to take my camera with me and, if time permits, go photograph some Metra trains just to see if I get anyone else telling me that train photography is illegal.
