Riding the Rails of History: The Story of the South Shore Line is presented by The Lake County Historical Society and produced by Do Good Productions. Both the LCHS and DGP are committed to preserving and sharing the history of Northwest Indiana to our communities and neighboring cities and states.

The hour long documentary program was first broadcast on Lakeshore Public Television (WYIN) in the fall of 2016 and is available to every PBS station in Indiana by request. Please feel free to ask your local PBS station if they have plans on airing the program.
