I may be spending time in the Chicagoland region sometime in the not-so-distant future and am curious to know about traffic levels at Franklin Park, excluding Metra operations which I'm very familiar with. Does anyone have a rough estimate on how many freight trains CP puts through the Franklin Park region on a daily basis? I figure they should at least run the 140/141, 142/143, and 240/241 (I think I have those at least mostly correct), but are there any others? And also, does CN operate anything on the line that crosses CP just east of Franklin Park?
Anything pertaining to railfanning in Illinois.
