South Shore service to remain suspended Saturday, probable to resume Sunday

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) – The South Shore Line will continue to have suspended service through Saturday, Feb. 2.

The train service made the announcement in a release Friday afternoon. Metra reportedly needs more time to fix damage to the Metra Electric District, which was caused by a freight train derailment, as well as address the ill effects of the extreme cold we have experienced.

Service is expected to return to normal Sunday, Feb. 3, but the South Shore Line cautions that "Sunday service is not a certainty at this time."

Trains are scheduled to run Saturday to test wire and track conditions, but they will not be carrying any passengers.
