  12. Let's calm down, @Johnny 5, @ChicagoNova. This may just be a temporary loaner to FG while some of their Novas might be parked around Wrigley right now. I saw at least one parked facing EB at Addison and Clark behind an artic. Also, the 1st Gen Novas might be a little down in numbers for obvious reasons(band-aid repairs), requiring a temporary borrow. If we see more than just #8166 on a FG route for an extended period, then I'd be inclined to think some roster changes may be occurring...

Change trains at Rosemont for continuing service to O'Hare. Bus shuttles are also available to help make connections.
  14. It was a New Flyer(# not noticeable in the video). The front is bent slightly forward where the windshield meets the headlight assembly area. Possible frame damage??? If so, that bus will most likely be scrapped. I don't think CTA repairs frame-damaged buses.
  15. They had them in the early 2000's and post-rehab, I know that. I don't know exact bus block assignments(maybe @BusHunter) can enlighten us there, but I can give you some numbers I personally seen on Irving Park back in the day to fill in the blanks a bit... 4567, 4684, 4687, 4689, 4695, 4697, 4700, 4705, 4708, 4710, 4711, 4713, 4717, 4725, 4741, 4757, 4761, 4765, 4767, 4770, 4774, 4777, 4784, 4787, 4790, 4795, 4855, 4856, 4857, 4858, 4859, 4860, 4861, 4862, 4863, 4864, 4865, 4866, 4867, 4869, 4870, 4871, 4873
