Canadian National wants to buy the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern railway that operates a line along the Naperville/Aurora border. Some residents and commuters are concerned about increased freight train traffic, and some critics warn that hazardous materials will be transported through neighborhoods. What are your thoughts of the proposal?
CN has proposed shifting some of its freight traffic west, away from Chicago and onto the EJ&E line. By some accounts the number of freight trains daily rolling along the tracks west of Route 59 could triple. Are you concerned about CN's plans, and if so, what are you doing about it?
