CSS 101 & 8 - Chicago South Shore & South Bend
Title:  CSS 101 & 8 - Chicago South Shore & South Bend
Description:  Beautiful sepia photo (left untouched) of two 1926 Pullman built interurban cars that was the backbone of the line before the newer Nippon Sharyo appeared in 1982. The orange cars, later crudely nicknamed "Crash-Rattle-Bang cars" as they neared the end of their service, were a familiar sight in northwest Indiana. L. Swanson photo

I think I can!!
Title:  I think I can!!
Description:  South Shore, in an effort to boost rider morale, put these stickers on the side of their cars in the late 70s. The railroad, at the time, was in disrepair, its cars over 50 years old, and much of its infrastructure in need of updating. Salvation would come in a few years with the NICTD, which today runs the South Shore with some funding from Indiana. In 1978, it was on a wing and a prayer-and a little optimism.

CSS&SB Pullman 8
Title:  CSS&SB Pullman 8
Description:  CSS&SB Pullman 8 at about Roosevelt Road in Chicago, Illinois sometime in October 1978, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 8 was built by Pullman Car and Manufacturing Company in early 1926, delivered to the new CSS&SB (which took over the bankrupt CLS&SB) by June 1926. It appears that the west end was designated as Front, note the F stencilled below the road number.
