SHARE Metra expects minimal BNSF delays for evening commute

Metra’s BNSL line is expected to run with only minimal delays during the evening rush, with things almost back to normal after a train derailed Monday morning near west suburban Naperville.

The derailment on the BNSF Railway caused extensive delays during the morning commute, but Metra is anticipating a normal evening rush with only minimal delays.

Train No. 1206, scheduled to depart Fairview at 5:45 a.m. and arrive in Chicago at 6:35 a.m., derailed just east of Naperville about 5 a.m., according to the transit agency. The train did not have any passengers at the time, and no injuries were reported.
