Honestly, no real value was lost transit-wise from the North Shore disappearing. The parallel C&NW line goes through the heart of Kenosha, Racine, and some southern Milwaukee suburbs while the NSL cut around the west side of these locations.

In Illinois, the North Shore had two main lines. One was immediately adjacent to the C&NW so while the right of way was lost after abandonment, there's still rail service on that corridor. The other mainline paralleled the C&NW roughly 1.5 miles to the west running roughly where Highway 41 does now. It doesn't make for a good transit corridor because it only hits one town center (Skokie) and the rest is just suburban wasteland. Service on the former NSL to Skokie was of course preserved.

Thanks to Metra's continued commuter rail operation of service to Kenosha, I see little point in any efforts to preserve NSL service or to restore it. Honestly, the Chicago, Aurora, & Elgin was a bigger loss.

Not all that closely. It went through some fairly dense suburbs west of Forest Park. And all the suburbs west of Wheaton got funneled into Wheaton arguably giving it the potential for intra-suburban travel. It serves the Fox River Valley with one line and branches what Metra has to now do with three main lines. It would also have provided a passenger only mainline. I would say that C&EA was better set up than NSL. But I suppose its loss wasn't catastrophic either.

Rampies, most of the time, are no joke. You'll get the few that don't care about their job, and the few that like to steal from the passengers. But that usually goes with the airlines giving work to the lowest bidder. Full-time company rampies do all sorts of crazy math, precision positioning, and what amounts to IRL Tetris.
