More Trains Through Barrington?
In May 2021, railways in our area made news again as the Canadian National Railroad (CN) and its competitor Canadian Pacific Railway are both vying to merge with the Kansas City Southern Railroad. If CN is successful, the merger will drive more rail freight volumes through the Chicago region, including Barrington. This would not only create more CN line rail traffic, but could also impact Metra routes and Amtrak as well.
