Chicago South Shore & South Bend Railroad (CSS) aims to expand business opportunities under a lease of 5 miles of track from CN in Gary, Indiana.

Effective last week, the lease of track is designed to improve the interchange between CSS and CN, as well as provide shipping options for customers through a higher frequency of service, CSS owner Anacostia Rail Holdings announced in a press release.

"We see this as part of our longstanding commitment to customers by ensuring efficient interchange with all our Chicago-area connections," said Eric Jakubowski, vice president and chief commercial officer for Anacostia Rail. "Gary has long been a great place for us to do business and this lease will make it possible for us to do an even better job."

Based in Michigan City, Indiana, CSS operates 127 route miles providing freight-rail service between Chicago and South Bend, Indiana. CSS is one of six railroads operated by Anacostia Rail Holdings.
