Union Pacific’s Villa Grove Sub runs from the big city of Chicago to the small town of Villa Grove. It is a busy double-track main, with a lot of traffic by CSX (trackage rights) and UP. This North-South line crosses many of the busy East-West mainlines in the Chicago area. We’ll see Canadian National, Indiana Harbor Belt and Norfolk Southern, all crossing at grade.

IHB still maintains a tower at Dolton. Join us along the former Chicago and Eastern Illinois as we see UP and CSX share this busy double track main.

  1. Greg

    I thought this was a good video. If I have any complaint, it would be that too much time was devoted to the Chicagoland area, and not enough given to the more rural areas. I would like to have seen some action at Watseka and Villa Grove, IL. All in all, a quality product.

  2. Tuscaloosa

    I don’t know what the other reviewer means when he says the trains were speeded up. I experienced nothing like that at all. There is a nice variety of traffic – and a lot of it – with CSX and UP both going into Chicago. The reason for a lower star rating however is the lack of variety in the shots. We see the same three-quarter shot over and over and over. Also, you’ll hear a lot of crossing bells. So, three stars.

    This was a great subject of a line rarely covered, but some shot was the same train and it seemed like they sped up the trains so makes for some weird sounds.
