South Shore Leases Track from CN in Gary

The Chicago South Shore & South Bend has leased five miles of track from Canadian National to enhance its interchange of traffic with the Class 1 carrier.

The track is located in Gary, Indiana, and will enable the South Shore to provide a higher frequency of service said the railroad’s owner, Anacostia Rail Holdings, in a news release.

“We see this as part of our longstanding commitment to customers by ensuring efficient interchange with all our Chicago-area connections,” said Eric Jakubowski, vice president and chief commercial officer for Anacostia Rail in a statement. “Gary has long been a great place for us to do business and this lease will make it possible for us to do an even better job.”

The South Shore has 127 routes miles between Chicago and South Bend, Indiana, and is one of six railroads operated by Anacostia.
