Hi Raymond
Glad to see that your are still trying to find new creative ways to use your scanner. Please remember that we have pointed you to the Illinois and Cook County database section which will provide you with a wide selection of frequencies and services to listen to.

About the railroad . . . .
The rail yard near you is for Canadian Pacific. Here is the link to the Illinois railway page:


Look at the section for CP (Canadian Pacific). It will give you the yard frequencies.

Have fun!

Metra is listed on that page in the link Raymond. You'll just have to plug in the frequencies to see what you can hear.
