South Shore double track opens

The South Shore Line has released new schedules effective Oct. 25 for the resumption of train service between the Carroll Avenue station in Michigan City, Ind., and Dune Park in Chesterton, Ind., as well as continued bus substitution between Dune Park and the Gary (Ind.) Metro Center station.
This includes the new double track segment that replaces street running in Michigan City, the last interurban style street operation left in the US

Full rail service over the entire line is slated to resume in spring 2024.

There have also been discussions about eventually running AMTRAK Michigan service over South Shore Line between Kensington and Michigan City in order to avoid congestion on the current NS route.
