  2. Metra Ride Along

    Hi-Ho, Everyone! I have been a bit absent on here as I've been undertaking a new hobby which I found in early July.... Virtual Railfanning, where I can watch streaming video of trains(Amtrak and Freight) 24/7. Anyhow, during my time on there, some other videos caught my eye.... videos of Metra trains recorded by Metra themselves that allow you to see what the Engineer sees for many of their lines(similar to CTA's Ride The Rails video library on CTA Connections). They have several up, with possibly more to come...

Trains in both directions are operating on the same track between Pulaski and 54th/Cermak stations due to an obstruction. Board all trains on the 54th/Cermak side of the platform at Pulaski station.

  5. Return of the 11 & 31 Bus

    Biggest mistake was pulling it like they did. The former riders migrated elsewhere, like everyone said. Getting the numbers CTA is wanting of 1,500/day, especially with only a 10a-8p run time between Fullerton and Western, is near impossible. That was the nail in the coffin to #11.

  8. Random CTA

    Ok.... now I know what you meant.... the Kimball Subway. I was thinking a extension further west on the Brown Line past Kimball.
  9. Random CTA

    Kimball Subway? Am I missing something? I didn't recall of any Brown Line extensions in the works....
