Wolverine Service Train Makes Unusual Detour

A track project on the Chicago Line of Norfolk Southern led to a detour of a Wolverine Service train over the South Shore Line in Northwestern Indiana on Tuesday.

No. 352 for Detroit (Pontiac) left Chicago Union Station on the route used by Amtrak’s Chicago-Carbondale-New Orleans trains, traveling on the former Illinois Central as far as Kensington interlocking.

There No. 352 switched to the South Shore Line, which it used to rejoin the NS Chicago Line near Porter, Indiana, at milepost 487.

The unusual routing added an hour-and-a-half of delay to No. 352.
