The Elk Grove Village Business Park is not only served with roads and nearby O’Hare Airport, but a short-line railroad system within the park. After a new company, Progressive Rail Incorporated, took over the lease for the rail system last year, it discovered a second small rail yard in the business park.
Progressive is a short-line railroad company based in Lakeview, MN, that is leasing the Chicago Junction Railway system from Union Pacific. The system contains 16-miles of track within four square miles of the Elk Grove Village Business Park. The Chicago Junction Railway’s main rail yard is located at 2511 Pratt Blvd.
