How, where or why was this car stalled on the tracks? Was this a possible suicide attempt because we don't need another one?

Where did this happen? The road doesn't cross the Metra tracks in Lake Bluff.

Maybe it was at the freight tracks on 176.....

MLK Drive crosses the Metra tracks just north of the base's main gate, but that's not in Lake Bluff. There is no place inside the Lake Bluff borders that a car could get onto the METRA tracks without goig through a barrier, jumping big curbs, or otherwise going "off-road" (including big grade changes).

There is an at-grade, dirt service road for the Metra tracks at the far north end of the Lake Bluff train station parking lot (straight across from Blodgett), but that is restricted access. So, if that's the case, whoever did this was confused...
