Mannheim is a station on Metra's Milwaukee District/West in Franklin Park, Illinois. The station is 14.0 miles (22.5 km) away from Union Station, the eastern terminus of the line. In Metra's zone-based fare system, Mannheim is in zone C. The reason this station is named because of Mannheim Road running right next to it. It is the only non-ADA-accessible station on the Milwaukee District West Line.
Mannheim Station is little more than a wooden shelter, which is smaller than Hanson Park Station further east. The station lies on the south side of Front Street between Lincoln and Ernst Streets. Parking is available on the north side of Front Street along the same block. It is just east of the large Canadian Pacific Bensenville Yard, which simply sits to the south of O'Hare Airport.
This station originally served as a milk stop for the village of Mannheim, Illinois. Mannheim was founded in the 1870s when the railroad was built through the area and was annexed into Franklin Park in the 1890s.
