A Metra spokesperson said Train 710 was inbound to Chicago after having left the yard in Harvard.

The train had not made its first stop yet and so it did not have any passengers on board when it derailed.

All Metra trains were not operating north of Crystal Lake.

The spokesperson said it is unclear how long it would take to clear the scene.

Heavy equipment or a crane would likely be needed.
