South Shore planning more trains for Blackhawks parade, rally

The South Shore Line is expecting large crowds Thursday for the historic Chicago Blackhawks celebration.

Bill O'Dea, NICTD's Chief Operating Officer says, "We are planning to use every available car. Unfortunately, given the size of our fleet, passengers should expect crowded conditions."

The South Shore Line is planning normal service as well as an extra train following westbound Train 214 out of Gary.

Passengers are already taking the train to Chicago Thursday morning. 

The Blackhawks will host a parade Thursday afternoon, followed by a rally at Soldier Field. 

It comes after the team won the Stanley Cup Final Monday night.
