Lampe takes presidential reins at Chicago SouthShore & South Bend

Last week, the Chicago SouthShore & South Bend Railroad (CSS) named Henry Lampe president to succeed Terry Hearst, who retired after serving in the position for 14 years.

During the past three years, Lampe served as a consultant to the railroad industry. He previously spent 33 years with Burlington Northern Santa Fe and its predecessor Santa Fe Railway, serving in various senior management positions in operations, marketing, equipment management and
strategic planning.

Hearst began serving as CSS' president shortly after the 129-mile short line — which provides service between Chicago and South Bend, Ind. — was formed in 1989. He also was an owner and director of CSS' parent company Anacostia & Pacific Co. Inc.

"Terry earned the respect of railroad customers and employees by leading the transformation of the SouthShore, which took over a failing, bankrupt firm, and developing it into to what is widely recognized as one of the most efficient small railroads in the United States," said Peter Gilbertson, Anacostia & Pacific chief executive officer and CSS chairman, in a prepared statement.
