Chicago Aurora & Elgin

Stations and Structures

Forest Park was the terminal after the elevated trackage was taken over by the freeway people.  Chicago service ended on September 20, 1953, and finally ended all service on July 3, 1957.  Distance from Chicago was 9 miles

Glen Oak.  Distance from Chicago was 21 miles.

Glen Ellyn.  It was the first major station east of Wheaton.  Distance from Chicago was 23 miles.

Wheaton was the center of the whole line.

Glenwood Park Power House was built in 1902 and expanded in 1911.  We, the Illinois Electric Railway Museum members, were looking for a permanent site.  We considered the Batavia branch and that power plant would have been a fantastic car barn.

Lakewood was on the Elgin branch and was the bus connection for Geneva and St. Charles and for Batavia after 1953.
