Oak Park, IL--Last Wednesday around 8:30 a.m., Oak Park commuter Marty Berg spotted a circus train rumbling through Oak Park on the Union Pacific West Line tracks. Actually, you couldn't miss it.

"The whole train was huge — 40/50 cars? — and had rail cars loaded with pickup trucks, tractors, passenger cars, and many passenger rail cars," Berg reported. "I guess the circus was in town!"
