ATSF (Santa Fe), B&O (Baltimore and Ohio), CNW (Chicago North Western), Amtrak, RTA / Metra, Conrail, CGW (Chicago Great Western), CB&Q (Burlington Route), GN (Great Northern), PRR (Pennsylvania), the Soo Line, the Rock (Rock Island, CRIP), NKP (Nickel Plate, New York, Chicago & St. Louis RR), UP (Union Pacific), CSS&SB (South Shore, Chicago South Shore and South Bend), Erie, GTW (Grand Trunk) and more."
