(Grayslake, IL) A broken down freight train caused a major headache for Lake County commuters. The train broke down early Thursday morning, blocking three railroad crossings in the Grayslake area, including the major intersection of Routes 120 and 83. Officials say a part between two rail cars broke, causing the stoppage. The issue not only caused problems on the roadways, but on the rails as well, as Metra experienced delays because of the broken down freight train. It took some seven hours to clear the train from the blocked crossings, which were open in time for the afternoon commute.
