CHICAGO — The wet, sloppy morning got even messier for commuters on the South Shore.

Some commuters had to find another way to get to work Monday morning after a South Shore train derailed in a Michigan City, Ind., railyard. Service was set to resume with delays just before 9 a.m.

The derailment caused the temporary suspension of trains arriving to Chicago's Millennium Station after 6:40 a.m., according to the website for the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District, which operates the line.

The district said it expected its westbound train to arrive in Chicago at 10:28 a.m. with delays of 15 to 20 minutes. Its eastbound service departing Chicago at 8:45 a.m. was expected to run about half an hour late.

No one was injured, the NICTD said.

Metra Electric will honor customer tickets, the district said.
