BREAKING NEWS ALERTABC 7 Local reports that a “commuter train is stuck behind a freight train on the UP West line,” between Maywood and River Forest. According to Metra officials, train #13 “has been stuck for more than half an hour since 7am.” This was reported more than two hours ago. There’s no word on whether the train is still there or not. According to the ABC report:

“‘This is an outbound train, supposed to arrive in Elburn at 7:21 a.m. That’s not going to happen,’ ABC7 Traffic Reporter Roz Varon said. ‘It’s still sitting there. That’s going to turn around and become an inbound train. You know how that goes.'”

“Other trains could get backed up due to that delayed train. Metra riders should allow for extra time.” VFP
