Metra Alert - Slippery rail season and how it affects train service

There's various reasons train service could be affected causing delays. During autumn months when leaves fall on tracks and a train's wheel crush them, a slick oily residue is left behind on the rail. This residue makes it harder for the train to get proper traction to start, stop, and maintain speed. As a result, delays may be experienced during your travel. Plan ahead and allow for extra travel time this autumn season. For additional info click here
