South Shore Trains To Resume Service After Power Outage

CHICAGO (STMW) -- South Shore Line trains are set to resume service after service was suspended between Chicago and northwest Indiana Thursday morning because of a power outage.

Service was suspended because of damage to Northern Indiana Public Service Company equipment caused by the blizzard, according to a statement posted to the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District website.

NIPSCO spokeswoman Kathleen Szot said the damage causing the outage had been repaired by approximately 6 a.m.

Westbound service will resume with the departure of Train 216 from Gary Metro Center at 10:12 a.m., and eastbound service will resume with the departure of Train 9 from Millennium Station at 12:35 p.m.

Midday passengers might encounter some delays, according to the statement.
