The North Shore Line ceased operations early in the morning, 55 years ago. Here is the fiftieth anniversary abandonment tribute.
That's the way it was, in September 1958. The railroad had already filed for permission to abandon.
Work continues at the Illinois Railway Museum restoring an Electroliner to operable condition.
Illinois Railway Museum are able to roll out a long North Shore train on occasion. Single cars are in operation elsewhere in the country. Perhaps one of these years the Seashore Trolley Museum will be able to re-enact the Substitute Electroliner. They have the conventional diner-lounge car and a Silverliner coach.
