South Shore Uses to Video to Attract Customers

The Chicago South Shore & South Bend Railroad is using a video made from a drone to spotlight more than 1,600 acres of prime business development locations along its 182 miles of track between Chicago and South Bend, Indiana.

The video depicts such locations as the Illinois International Port District in Chicago, properties adjacent to CSS tracks at Burnham rail yard in Hammond and Gary, Indiana; available space near South Shore’s headquarters and shops in Michigan City, Indiana; sites in La Porte, Indiana, including the La Porte Space Center; and 1,000 acres at the Kingsbury Industrial Park, and locations on the east end of the railroad at New Carlisle, Indiana.

“The spectacular views of these properties really drive home South Shore’s advantage in offering great connections across all modes,” said CSS President Todd Bjornstad. “Our goal with the video is to show industrial developers and plant site locators the great advantages we offer in this region.”

The video also provide facts about the properties including property dimensions, rail-yard capacity, highway access, and trans-loading opportunities.

Anacostia Rail Holdings said it plans to offer similar videos for its other railroads including Louisville & Indiana Railroad.
