Amtrak Back on Normal Route in Chicago

Amtrak returned to its regular route on Tuesday between Chicago and Joliet, Illinois, after being disrupted on Monday by a freight train derailment.

The line, which is owned by Canadian National, was closed after an early morning wreck near Willow Springs.

Metra Heritage Corridor service was canceled on Monday and some Amtrak trains were detoured over Metra’s Rock Island District. At least two Lincoln Service trains were canceled.

The first Amtrak train to resume its normal route on Tuesday was St. Louis-bound No. 301, which departed Chicago Union Station at 7 a.m.
