Hi Jeff. Is CTR still active by the Clybourn Metra UP station? I was wondering whatever happened to the brown ILSX 900 that was always parked there and hasn't been seen in a few months. Thank you.

I don't know that they have any customers left. They existed to serve the former east-of-river MILW trackage which is mostly gone. Finkl Steel moved south near the old NKP main at 95th, Peerless Confection moved somewhere out to the burbs, and I think General Iron uses barge now.
