The following trains were annulled or affected:

•Westbound trains 502 and 504 between South Bend and Chicago; and westbound Train 606 between Michigan City and East Chicago.

•Eastbound Train 503 between East Chicago and South Bend; and eastbound trains 603 and 605 between East Chicago and Michigan City.
