Yes. I have no idea why you cannot complete this. OM gave you some hints.

Metra is not really part of the national passenger network.  It doesn't sell interline tickets and almost no passengers connect with Amtrak.  Similarly, the Interstate Commerce Commission declined jurisdiction over discontinuance of CA&E's passenger service in 1957 for the same reasons.

  I'm a lttle late on this, but I just stumbled onto your note.

The reason the Interstate Commerce Commision wouldn't have taken jurisdiction over the CA&E passenger discontinuance is that it was only a discontinuance of intrastate passenger service (as opposed to an abandonment of the railroad - that came later).  The ICC had no jurisdisction over intrastate passenger service discontinunances until enactactment of the Transportation Act of 1958.
