South Shore train service resumed just after 10 a.m. Thursday following the suspension of all trains earlier in the morning due to NIPSCO damage caused by the blizzard, representatives said.
Train service resumed with Train No. 216 from Gary Metro Center, Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District spokesman John Parsons said.
Regular eastbound service will resume with the departure of Train No. 9 from Millennium Station at 12:35 p.m. Midday passengers may encounter delays, Parsons said.
Parsons said earlier the suspension of service was caused by a NIPSCO conductor that failed near the Ind. 249 bridge in Porter County Wednesday night, "threatening our overhead power distribution system and preventing our trains from traveling through the affected area."
Parsons said the blizzard also cut power to the grade crossing warning devices between Grant Street and Waverly Road in Porter County, impacting 18 crossings.
