Project Description

This project will create a new yard in Woodstock, with room to store 14 trains, representing a 30% increase in capacity relative to current conditions. The yard will contain office and garage space, as well as a break room, communications rooms, lockers, and a parking lot. By storing trains at Woodstock, it will reduce the need to store trains on yards at Crystal Lake and Barrington, thereby allowing more trains to stop at stations northwest of Barrington on the Union Pacific Northwest line, and also removing idling trains from idling in downtown areas.
