Metra suspends two engineers who let a teenager into the cabs of their locomotives. The Daily Herald reports the two are veterans of the rail line. One was suspended for six months without pay, the other for two months.

A third engineer who let the teenager operate the controls of a train quit his job earlier this month, right before a disciplinary hearing on the matter.
