Crystal Lake is one of two stations on Metra's Union Pacific/Northwest Line located in Crystal Lake, Illinois. The station is two stops away from the line's terminus at Harvard, and many trains on the Northwest Line only run as far as Crystal Lake. A large coach yard is adjacent to the station and has additional storage tracks to store trains during off-peak hours. A Union Pacific dispatch center for Metra trains as well as a junction are also located just east of here. The McHenry Branch splits off at this junction. The station is 42.9 miles (69.0 km) away from Ogilvie Transportation Center.[3] Parking is available at the station.
