Three trains on Metra’s Union Pacific Northwest Line were temporarily stopped near northwest suburban Barrington during the morning commute Tuesday because of a disabled freight train.
Trains No. 606, 608 and 610—scheduled to arrive in Chicago at 7:02 a.m., 7:17 a.m. and 7:22 a.m., respectively—were stopped near Barrington Tuesday morning, according to a service alert posted on Metra’s website at 6:40 a.m.
