  1. With Thanksgiving approaching soon, I think it's safe to say that Covid-19 has claimed two holiday traditions in Chicago now(and for the good of the people of Chicago due to crowds and the dangers), but it still hurts to say the Holiday Train and Bus will probably not be here for 2020*. *There's still a chance, but very slim.... like less than 5% slim..... 😔
  2. With the ongoing Covid issues and numbers surging.... wouldn't surprise me for the bid to be tabled right now.... a factory full of workers right now is probably a super spreader event waiting to happen.
  3. There still would be the question of people on the platform for pics... no social distancing.... maybe/maybe not wearing masks. I would think it'll be cancelled for safety measures. The positivity rate is at 5.4% in Illinois and we're only in October. Danger point is at 5%.
  4. Trying not to be the scrooge.... but I doubt it'll be running due to Covid-19. The CP Holiday Train was cancelled this year.
  5. It'll come down to one of these two, most likely.
  6. I seen #6066 being towed years ago. What they do is remove the rack to access the towing points. The rack is put in the bus for transport and the bus is towed away once strapped down.
  7. 6700 broke down on Addison near Lincoln WB.
  8. Well, if you want a little trip down memory lane... how about riding #4808 again?
  9. I wonder if the 7000- series railcars will be it with the ongoing trade war. https://abc7chicago.com/business/south-side-cta-car-manufacturers-future-unclear-due-to-china-trade-war/5484188/
  10. Well, we found 2347 at Canal Shores Golf Course.
  11. I guess maybe it went south, then back north to Forest Glen because it's out today.
  12. 6805 broke down Irving Park, Damen & Lincoln EB. Bus turned south onto Lincoln, maybe to 77th or South Shops?

    More Bus Moves

    Well, actually the 7900-Series of the order ends with 8324.
  14. 6871 broke down Addison and Leavitt WB.

    More Bus Moves

    It would be nice if you could,but CTA will deny you that ability. They usually cut the lines and drain all the fluids and run the bus until it seizes(at least they did with 1606 back in 2002). That was sad, as that Flyer could've probably been saved to be part of IRM perhaps, or even the CTA Heritage Fleet.
