The Metra engineer accused of allowing a teenager to operate a train with passengers on board has resigned. Brian Voss turned in his resignation one day before a hearing on the matter was scheduled to begin.

Metra officials learned about the incident when the teen posted photos on his MySpace page.

Two other engineers have been suspended for allegedly allowing the teen to enter the locomotive's cab.
