Chicago Terminal Railroad Ops

Anyone know when the Chicago Terminal railroad operates. This can be for the Street running or their Bensenville area.

You are confusing Chicago Terminal with the B&OCT.  Chicago Terminal operates a collection of industrial leads on the near North Side.  Power is an ex-AC SW8 leased from ILS and lettered for Chicago Terminal, which lays over at the C&NW yard facility near Clybourn station and is visible from the Kennedy Expressway.

The daily commute is part of everyday life but I get two rides a day out of it. Paul

The Chicago Terminal Railroad Is An Awesome Railroad!

The Goose Island Location: The Railroad Would Connect With Union Pacific At The North Avenue Train Yard Which The Railroad Would Use The Line As You Referred To As The Street Runner Line Which Would Be Used Once Or Twice A Week When Needed.

The Train Crew Is A Conductor And Train Driver With A Switcher Locomotive Which The Railroad Would Provide Service To A Junk Yard And A Lumber Yard With One To Two Rail Cars Used For Each Business Once Or Twice A Week.

The Elk Grove Location: The Elk Grove Has The Most Business Out Of Each Line Owned From This Railroad Which This Line Has More Than Seven Customers With A Routine Carload Rate From About More Than Two Dozen.

This Line Has A Conductor And Train Driver Which Would Work The Union Pacific Train Yard Connection And A Few Business Which Another Conductor And Train Driver Would Work The Other Businesses.

There Is A "GEEP" And Switcher Locomotive



The Bensenville Location: The Bensenville Location Is The Most Newest Addition To The Terminal Railroad Which The Bensenville Location Would Connect To The CP Bensenville Train Yard. A "GEEP" Would Work The Bensenville Location And Provide Train Service To About Two Customers On A Routine Basis Which A Warehouse Which Would Have About Seven Box Cars On A Routine Basis And A Marshmallow Business Which Would Have About Four On A Routine Basis.

This Line Has A Conductor And Train Driver.
