South Shore trains to resume Sunday; Metra Electric to start limited service

Metra Electric and South Shore Line trains were not running Saturday - the fourth straight day.

However, service will be returning to both lines on Sunday. Trains on Metra Electric and South Shore were suspended this week due to damage caused by a freight train derailment and the extreme cold.

Metra will run Metra Electric Line service between Millennium Station and Kensington/115th Street and along the South Chicago Branch on Sunday, but service south will remain suspended as the agency continues to repair damage caused by a freight train derailment. The South Shore Line to Indiana also will reopen and will operate a normal Sunday schedule.
