Trains Presents: BNSF's Chicago Racetrack

Join Assistant Editor Brian Schmidt for a look at BNSF Railway's famed "Racetrack," the former Chicago, Burlington & Quincy main line between Chicago and Aurora, Ill. You'll see fast freights along with Amtrak and Metra passenger moves along the triple-track speedway at the Naperville and Route 59 stations.

For more Chicago railroading, be sure to check out our new special issue, Chicago, America's Railroad Capital, and the companion DVD. Both are available in January 2017.
