The Little Joes’ have long since passed into history. And although the wire remains, the South Shore line has changed dramatically. Passenger service is provided on the line, but under the control of the Northern Indiana Commuter Authority and Metra and remains electrified.

South Shore is now South Shore Freight. It is still resplendent in the original orange livery, here pulling a train through Burns Harbor Michigan.
