Indiana Southshore Train Service Restored



    Under the Tucson Sun

    Train service has been restored on the South Shore Railroad between South Bend Indiana and East Chicago.

    On Sunday a power outage in Northern Indiana had suspended train service for hours.

    South Shore lines are operated by The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD).   They blame the service halt on a loss of commercial power from the Northern Indiana Public Service Company in Porter County Indiana (NIPSCO).

    South Shore Rail spokesperson John Parsons said a high voltage line that came down near the Dune Park station caused the interruption in power.  Service was restored at around 2:30 p.m. 

    Service is expected to catch up and not be any more than "5 to 10 minutes behind during the morning rush hour," said Parsons.

    The following trains were affected: Westbound Trains 502 and 504 between South Bend and Chicago; and Westbound Train 606 between Michigan City and East Chicago.

    Also the Eastbound Train 503 between East Chicago and South Bend; and eastbound Trains 603 and 605 between East Chicago and Michigan City.
