As a brief note, there are plans to build a Metra station a US Cellular, also providing service to a nearby college. Don't know if there's been any progress on it, but that's a more appropriate discussion for the Metra forum.

I don't have all the details, and I can't go too much into the ones I have, but the M1As will not be retained for this service for too too long. Once the M8s arrive, M2s that were thru the CSR program at a late date will be dedicated to this service displacing the M1As and allowing additional fleet flexibility as they will also be able to bolster the M4/M6 fleet.

Anyone who has any more info on this PLEASE chime in and correct me / update me.

Just to clarify: the M1s are being retained to support the Yankees service, but will not be assigned to the service.

Can we start a new thread about this, since the Yankee Stadium station has been built, and actual service begins this month?
