SOUTH BEND – People trying to ride the South Shore Railroad Monday morning were forced to find another ride.
That’s because a South Shore train derailed in Michigan City.
That derailment suspended all South Shore service between South Bend and Chicago.
Fortunately, nobody was hurt, but the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District says all service was disrupted through the morning rush hour.
The derailment left people stranded at the South Bend Regional Airport, waiting to find a ride. The airport in South Bend is the east end of the South Shore rail line.
Service resumed shortly before 10 a.m. (EST)
NICTD expected regular eastbound Train 7 scheduled to leave Chicago at 9:45 a.m. to be about 30 minutes late.
The derailment forced the cancellation of 6 South Shore rush hour trains scheduled to arrive in Chicago between 8:21 and 9:52 a.m. (EST)
NICTD says Metra Electric honored South Shore tickets.
