The movie "Lucas" as we know was set in Glen Ellyn,IL and filmed at Glenbard West. Many scenes involve the railroad and the former Chicago Northwestern Railroad/Metra West line, which runs from Chicago's Union Station all the way to St. Charles (Metra) and Clinton, Iowa for the CNW freight. The line shown in the movie is the 1st Transcontinental Railroad and one of only 3 movies that the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad is filmed. The CNW West line was a major historical railroad. Now owned by the Union Pacific Railroad, the line and stations along the line still exist. Just a piece of information that links the movie Lucas with some historical aspects of Glen Ellyn and the Chicago Northwestern Railroad.
