Glencoe Station is a historic commuter railroad station along Metra's Union Pacific/North line in Glencoe, Illinois. It is officially located on 724 Green Bay Road, however it also runs parallel to Old Green Bay Road, both of which intersect with Park Avenue.
Like the Braeside Train Station, Glencoe is in close proximity to the Cook County Forest Preserves' Turnbull Woods, William N. Erickson Preserve, and the Chicago Botanic Garden. Unlike Braeside, Glencoe was built in a partial Romanesque-style for the Chicago and North Western Railway by architect Charles Sumner Frost in 1891. The Green Bay Bike Trail, and the local Veterans Memorial Park are also nearby.
Northbound trains go as far north as Kenosha, Wisconsin, and southbound trains go as far as to Chicago's Ogilvie Transportation Center. The station was considered for listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991 but this was not done after the Chicago and North Western Railway, which owned the property, objected.
As of 2018, Glencoe is the 72nd busiest of Metra's 236 non-downtown stations, with an average of 732 weekday boardings.
