Manufacturers' Junction Railway (MJ) owns and operates over 6 miles of trackage in Cicero, Illinois. The railroad was incorporated to serve the former Western Electric Hawthorne Works, a primary producer of telephones and related equipment. Although a portion of the Hawthorne plant was converted into retail space, the majority was redeveloped into a business center, which includes rail customer candidates.

Substantial warehouse and car storage space is available on and around the MJ, presenting many growth opportunities as companies continue to relocate into the area.
