RTAMS Dataset Details

Metra Rail Stations

Dataset:Metra Rail Stations
Source:Metra, RTA
Data Vintage:October 2007
Update Frequency:As needed
Description:This point file contains the locations of Metra commuter rail lines. It was created by staff of the Regional Transportation Authority in the Winter of 2001, based upon a partial edit of the Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission's 1:24,000 scale 1996 Metra Rail Lines and Stations ArcInfo coverage file. The BNSF rail line stations and selected other Metra stations were edited based upon September 1999 digital aerial photos. The points in this file represent the approximate center of the train when it stops on the rail tracks at a particular station stop; it does not represent the center of the station house. A corresponding Metra rail line file was also created.
