Land Bought for Possible Train Station

St. Joseph County government is buying a mobile home park

on the east side of New Carlisle.

The reason is to build a possible South Shore commuter line station.

Reports indicate the purchase price was just over 400 thousand dollars.

Officials say the need is from an expected increase in ridership from a proposed

double track, increasing travel times to and from Chicago.

A new train station there would eliminate the current one in nearby Hudson Lake.

According to a study, four riders a day use the Hudson Lake station but with a

double track, use of a New Carlisle station would be anywhere from 120 to 670 riders

per day by 2040.
