I've been there plenty of times, just can't get to my mind what kind of locomotives run through there, Union Pacific is the owner of that particular R.R., I think there is some NS power up there too (Chicago)

Guess who lives in Glen Ellyn. :p Only Union Pacific. It is an ex. C&NW line, so due to ATC cab signaling the only trains that can use it are literally UP or the remaining two C&NW's. Thats also why the line can be so damn boring... Of course other engines use the line, but a UP/C&NW has to lead. In fact there is a Norfolk Southern coal train, but when it comes inbound and loaded it always has two UP C60AC's. When it comes back how ever it will have usually two to three NS engines. Otherwise, through out all of Chicago, everything that runs through the Chicago area (Except the EJ&E) runs through Chicago. Hope this helps
