My coworker who takes the BNSF was ranting about these changes this morning. Her evening express has been cancelled or delayed numerous times over the past month of so (primarily to the benefit of Napervillians at the expense of those closer in). My friends who lived even further out on this line got so sick and tired of Metra and fed up to the point that they moved back downtown.

SJ - Norra Stambanan, Nordvästra stambanan, Södra stambanan, Dalabanan
