Schiller Park opened as an infill station on the North Central Service on January 30, 2006. It is located on the edge of an intermodal freight yard with containers visible from the platform. The station is simple with two platforms, Platform #1 one for the westernmost main-line Track 1, and a second Platform #2 just beyond track 1 (with a fence prohibiting access to Track 1 making it an island platform) for Track 2. One pedestrian crossing in the middle of the platforms connects Track 2 to the outside world. As of 2018 all trains except for Outbound Train #101 (as signs say) stop on Track 1. Waiting passengers have a small retro-looking brick station house complete with a clock tower, an angled roof, and porches on each side along platform 1. Inside this building is a small waiting area with a few benches. Platform 2 has a tiny canopied portion (about 10 feet long), the shelter looks like a very tiny extension of the station building with an extremely high gray roof. The tracksare on the eastern edge of a 106 space parking & ride lot, all access to this park and ride lot is from Ruby Street which runs parallel to the train line.
