This South Shore Line train car was originally built back in 1920s. Train cars like this served the South Shore Line faithfully all the way until the mid-1980s. Of course, the only reason why they lasted this long was because the railroad couldn't afford to buy new ones, so they had no choice but to make do with what they had. Still, these train cars had to go above and beyond the call of duty, carrying three generations of passengers between Chicago and Northwest Indiana. And that's pretty cool in my book.
Now, this train rests in National New York Central Railroad Museum in Elkhart, Indiana, surrounded by other aged train cars and locomotives.
Rest in peace, South Shore car. Rest in peace.
