A freight train derailed early Sunday morning along the Milwaukee District West Line in Elgin, creating hours of delays for Metra.
Elgin fire officials said two cars derailed on the train, which contained more than 100 cars, at 1:25 a.m. Sunday along a stretch south of National Street and north of Route 20.
Fire officials said one of the cars contained acid, but none leaked. There were no injuries.
Work crews are still on the scene working on getting normal service resumed, fire officials said, Pedestrian and vehicle traffic is not affected, since the tracks are located below grade.
TRain riders planning to board at National Street were instructed to use the Bartlett station to board trains.
