  1. Metra Electric in Train Simulator 2015

  2. Metra Electric in Train Simulator 2015

  3. Hello All, I've been on the forums for quite some time . Although, I don't post often I'm reading the forums regularly. I recently moved to Minneapolis and they don't have anything close to the chitransit forums. So I've started my own transit enthusiast Facebook page. Feel free to like the page especially the few twin cities people on the forums. Thanks! https://www.facebook.com/tctransitfan
  4. 2600-series - Service Dates

    if this was during AM rush I've seen this before too. My guess is that they are "gap" trains to be used as needed as a result of the 3 track operations at Wilson .
  5. CTA Rail Service Alerts

    So when things like this happen what do they do with the operators scheduled to do that route ? I'm assuming they get re assigned but seeing the yellow line is probably a high seniority pick I'm sure they don't want to do a red line run .
  6. ​Yup the 55-Hiawatha is now the Blue Line and the St Paul/Minneapolis LRT is the Green line. I've rode on both just for fun, I should take pictures next times and upload them.
  7. Hello All, long time lurker rare poster on the forums. After living all my life in Chicago I just recently moved to the Minneapolis and started exploring their transit system in my free time. Recently Metro transit had a free open house for their Northstar Commuter train. This included access to the maintenance facility, a free round trip ride and lunch . I thought I would share.... https://www.flickr.com/photos/132068498@N04/sets/72157651780118407/

  9. Random CTA

    Same issue late at night with the Red line at Howard. They seem to just sometimes leave a train parked at the station or take 10-15mins to pull a train out. Then when there is a red line approaching then tend to give the purple line first clearance at the crossover which has made me miss quite a few purple lines that way.
  10. Red & Purple Modernization Project (RPM)

    I'm sorry if it was posted somewhere and I didn't see but does anyone know if RPM includes extending the purple line stations to 8 cars
  11. CTA at IRM

    I was talking to one of the volunteers and he was telling me this was only the 3rd time running 2243-44. He said they complete the work about only about a month or so ago. I didn't think I would get to ride it because they had pulled it in for about a hour to troubleshoot an issue.
  12. CTA at IRM

    I took a trip out to Union, IL for CTA Day. I took some pics and a couple videos on my cell phone. I thought I would share. They had running Car 41 & 22, 2243-44, a Cta streetcar, along with some other equipment. http://s290.photobucket.com/user/kenny528/library/CTA%20Day%20June%2021
  13. 2400-series - Service Dates
