"Rail Rangers" To Join South Shore Line Passengers For The Ride

The non-profit railroad historical group American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation formed a new partnership with the South Shore Line/Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District to offer passengers on selected Saturdays an opportunity beginning next month to learn more about the communities served by the commuter train.

I talked with Robert Tabern, the Foundation's Vice President, for Tuesday's "Regionally Speaking" about the organization and its previous "Rail Ranger Guide" trips on other passenger lines, including the "Hoosier State" service between Chicago and Lafayette.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
