South Shore Line train service restored after derailment

All South Shore trains are running again after a derailment Saturday morning in Michigan City, Indiana, that suspended service between Chicago and northwest Indiana.

A train was being moved to the main tracks from a maintenance facility near Carroll Avenue in Michigan City when it derailed around 5 a.m., according to Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District spokesman John Parsons.

There were no passengers aboard the train at the time, and no one was injured, Parsons said. Two of the train’s eight cars derailed and damaged the tracks in the process.

All train service was restored shortly before 4:45 p.m., Parsons said.
