South Shore Derailment Snarls Service

A derailment in Chicago forced the South Shore Line to temporary suspend service on Tuesday afternoon.

The accident occurred at low speed when Train No. 18 derailed as it was entering Millennium Station.

With westbound trains unable to enter the station, the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District, which operates the South Shore, cancelled service. Metra Electric District trains were honoring South Shore tickets.

NICTD said it was “mobilizing as many trains as possible to minimize this disruption,” but expected long delays for the Tuesday evening commute.
