CHICAGO'S LOST STATIONS

CHICAGO & NORTH WESTERN (MILWAUKEE DIVISION)

Chicago/Nearby Stations

Chicago's largest commuter operation previously had many local stations within Chicago and the immediate nearby suburbs. But in 1958, many of those stations were discontinued, allowing Chicago & North Western to focus more on longer suburban commutes. Some stations were discontinued earlier. As it turns out, CTA rapid transit lines operate close to all three Chicago & North Western lines in these areas.

Discontinued stations were closed in 1958, unless noted.

Stations capitalized and without commentary are present Metra stations, further information on stations at official Metra Web Site.

Milepost locations are indicated, distance from Chicago.


This entire right of way segment is elevated.
