Construction on the Chicago District.
Photo taken at Scott Rd grade crossing.

Has anyone heard anything about adding a second track?

I read on another thread somewhere that they are extending the end of the double track at Hadley to the siding at Dunfee.

By the looks of the roadbed they put in, it appears to me that the extended Hadley Siding will stop a little short of East Dunfee. This picture is looking west From West Hamilton Road, and it looks like the siding will end between there and Noyer Road, one road west.

About how short? It would make little sense to have a short stretch of single main, depending upon that length and geological obstacles.

I would say it's about a mile. Maybe they want to keep the two sidings distinctly separate.
