Yes, leaks are possible, but they are rare. If you see a Metra car leaking, please report it to us. We will look for information such as: exact time, track number, and rail line/rail car number (if noticed). We will find the effected railcar and service the railcar.

Metra does not own Chicago Union Station so we cannot speak to the operations there. Metra’s policy is we do not dump waste tanks at Chicago Union Station. Railcars are usually serviced at the outlying rail yards.

Thank you for the comment. Metra does not dump waste tanks at Union Station and services the railcars in the outlying rail yards.

Thank you for the question. Yes, conductors do report these issues to their supervisors. If an issue is reported to us, we skip this step and put in a service ticket directly to the respective mechanical department. This helps get the issue in the queue quicker.

Thank you for the comment. Could you let us know the train you are on and the railcar number so we could report it to the Mechanical Department. The railcar number is located on the door or in the vestibule.

When a complaint comes through SM/email, a service request is submitted to the responsible mechanical entity. In this case, it is Union Pacific mechanical crews. Conductors also submit service requests when able. We have passed along this info to UP Mechanical.

Additionally, if you could provide the train line and the railcar number (located on the doors/in the vestibule) we can then notify mechanical of an HVAC issue.
