Romeoville Station, known as Romeo on timetables,[1] was an Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway station in the Chicago suburb of Romeoville, Illinois. The station was located near the Illinois and Michigan Canal.[2] Freight trains still pass by the site of the old station, on the double track Southern Transcon Line.

Metra has had plans for a new Romeoville station on the Heritage Corridor since the early 21st Century. The station and accompanying parking would be located on the property belonging to the Citgo oil refinery between Lemont and Lockport.[3][4][5]
