    90 years later, an upgraded South Shore rail line is on track
    Back in 1927, representatives of the South Shore railroad discussed adding a second track to speed travel times, add trains and attract more passengers. It took 90 years, but Indiana officials think that a double track for the South Shore from Gary to Michigan City, along with a line extension from Hammond south to Dyer, could finally happen.

  • Both of these losers have babies at home, can some please Sterilize these 2 💩Heads? Perhaps the City could pass out free condoms at the Belmont Red line station. It appears to be home base for all the crime.

  • Those babies are probably living off our taxes too. Why no cry to sterilize the the women who get knocked up by these guys too? Rubbers are passed out for free at the center on Halsted down the street from the red line maybe if it were a little more straight friendly they would take advantage of their services?
