South Shore adds rail-car storage capacity

Chicago South Shore & South Bend Railroad (CSS) recently added rail-car storage opportunities for empty or loaded freight cars.

The expanded storage space is the result of new investments in track capacity designed to help third-party and off-line customers with short- and long-term rail-car storage needs, CSS officials said in a press release.

"The need for railcar storage capacity located close to Chicago fluctuates based on ebbs and flows of storage space in the industry," said CSS President Todd Bjornstad. "We are offering this because we believe South Shore's easy access to multiple Chicago railroads gives third-party customers a chance to take advantage of our strategic location."

Under the program, CSS offers interchange service daily except Saturday. The railroad offers short- or long-term rates based on how long cars will be stored.

CSS interchanges with six Class Is and several regional and switching railroads.
