With all the rail lines criss-crossing the
state, it's quite helpful to use a radio scanner to keep track of train

operations. The Chicago Area Radio Monitoring Association (CARMA) has compiled
all the frequencies used by railroads in Illinois and entered it into a
downloadable file. It is available here with permission.
