February 23rd - Midwest Rail Rangers South Shore Line Program

Millennium Station - Chicago, IL

Please "like" and monitor our Facebook and Twitter feeds later in the week if you are planning to attend this event. Some forecasts call for a major winter storm to impact Chicago/Northwest Indiana this weekend. If that is the case, we will likely cancel our on-board educational program on Saturday, January 19 in the interest of not putting our guides or fans at risk of driving to Downtown Chicago. We hope to make a decision by Thursday night at the latest. Many other program dates are upcoming including January 26. Our new passport stamps would then debut on February 23. Head to www.RailRangers.org for a complete listing. Thanks for understanding!
