The Galena Amtrak station is a proposed train station located in Galena, Illinois, and will serve a new Chicago-Rockford-Dubuque Amtrak route that is expected to begin operation in late 2014 or early 2015.[1] However, with the new proposal for Amtrak service to terminate in Rockford following the inability of the state of Illinois to reach a deal with the Canadian National Railway for use of their tracks, the Galena station project is on hold until a deal can be reached with the CN.[2]
