HOMEWOOD RAILROAD VIEWING PLATFORM
2020 Chestnut Road | Homewood, IL 60430 | (708) 798-3000


Rail Lines Seen: Canadian National, Amtrak & Metra

Since 2007, the elevated train watching platform in Homewood has been a popular destination because of its location, amenities and train traffic. Located less than a mile south of Canadian National’s Markham Yard and Moyers Intermodal Facility, railfans can view three types of trains that pass by the handicap accessible platform including regional commuter (Metra), intercity rail (Amtrak) and freight.

The platform is adjacent to the historic Homewood train station and the vibrant downtown area with a variety of restaurants and shops. The Spanish revival-style train station was completed in 1923 and sits adjacent to an entrance to a pedestrian tunnel under the tracks that lead to the Metra and Amtrak loading platforms.
