History Rides with Rail Rangers


South Shore News

In partnership with both the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, the APRHF Rail Rangers provide onboard educational programs on the South Shore Line through Illinois and Indiana.

Rail Rangers Interpretive Guides narrate the passing scenery to the public -- just buy a ticket at a station or ticket kiosk, grab a seat in our designated car (program takes place in one designated car on the train), and participate at no extra cost! No reservations are ever needed for our South Shore Line programs, plus you can hop-on and off at any stop. These programs are presented in partnership with the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, the National Park Service, and the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD).

Eastbound programs take place aboard the train that departs Chicago-Millennium at 8:40AM CT. Westbound programs take place aboard the train that departs South Bend at 1:05PM ET. For a complete schedule of intermediate stops that you can get on/off the train, a map, plus other FAQ's on the Rail Rangers' South Shore program, visit the Rail Rangers website at: http://www.dunestrain.com/
