Review of South Shore Line DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
South Shore Memories – Follow The South Shore Line through the years:

1965 Myron Weber traces the South Shore in both summer and winter. Through rain, shine and snow he records the banshee moan of the passenger trains rocketing at record-breaking speed through the dunes, by the grain elevators and past the steel mills.

1981 Through streets and countryside passenger trains race east to South Bend and west again, leaving high-speed traffic on the parallel Indiana Tollway in the dust. Bright orange "Little Joe's" methodically work the freight and sidings.

1956-58 Frank Pfuhler documents the orange and maroon Pullman-built "battleships" from the original terminus in downtown South Bend all the way to Randolph St. in Chicago; screaming across the swells of the Illinois Prairie in the epitome of interurban style. Plenty of 6000 horsepower "Little Joe's" and many ex-New York Central R-2's.

1992- Silver South Shore cars make the trip on the new
