Feed Notes

Welcome to the CPKC/Metra Rail - Chicago radio stream.  Located on the north side of Chicago, this feed covers the east ends of Metra/CPKC's Elgin and C&M Subdivisions.  Metra commuter trains, Amtrak, and Canadian Pacific Kansas City (CPKC) freight operations can be heard.  Radio reception of dispatcher towers is best, though some locomotive/cab car radios can be heard especially on the C&M Subdivision.  I have also added the CN Waukesha Sub and CN Road chfrequencies to the scanlist on an experimental basis, in hopes of picking up transmissions from Metra's North Central Service trains.


Frequencies Monitored:


160.770 MHz - Metra/CPKC C&M/Fox Lake Subs

161.520 MHz - Metra/CPKC Elgin Sub
