  1. Circle Line Revisited via Amazon

    I have no doubt what ever gets built around goose island can become a generator. Yes red and brown are smacked on weekday rush but if its a weekend they probably might be the main mode since mag mile or state is more of the destination. It's just would weekends support it considering it's pretty dead between LaSalle and halsted once all the business people are done for the day and on weekends. Unless a huge swath of west loop, west side residents suddenly got a need for direct connections between these areas for recreational use that I'm not aware of 😂😊
  2. Circle Line Revisited via Amazon

    I'm trying to picture demand or generators along the route that would make it non-redundant on weekends. Ogilvie to goose island seems like a shift work or 9-5 type of corridor, at least with the route im picturing in my head from reading this and the map shown. It basically starts near North/Clybourn and Armitage brown so if anything it would serve the same function as a LaSalle Express route (getting people to train stations and business/offices directly without going through the red line or a Michigan express)
  3. It's gonna be rolled out In bits between now and 2019(?). First phase folded 205 into 213, idk if 54A already got it's change or if it's part of a later phase
  4. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Nova is mandatory no? Like the Booth basically was made to be closed at all times unless you want the door swinging and smacking passengers lol. I think someone said the bus won't move if it's open but i think I remember someone driving with it unsecured. I just know that time you couldn't leave it locked open like a New Flyer, it swung unless he closed himself in
  5. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Wonder if running all 3200s off peak Is taxing on the power. You seen the latest slow zone maps? I lot of power slow zones popping up
  6. 3200-series - Rehabs

    I still think no part of the city is being favorited. People just worked up over trivial matters far as this is concerned, I just laid out that Red was never really a winner over blue as much as ppl convince themselves 🙄😂
  7. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Also taking dates into consideration you have: Blue- constant tie replacement on forest park from 2001-2012 O hare tie replacement -2007-2008 Blue line subway - 2009 Your new blue -2014 Red line - A more vibrant red (2004-2007) Subway track replacement (2008) Dan Ryan track- 2013 And RPM related work so if you want to compare blue and red they got work and repairs on a similar timeline only thing that's standing out with red line getting new cars is that considering fleet compatibility and the number of 5000s, someone was gonna have something to complain, logistically Howard became the better choice due to 3 lines sharing one yard
  8. 3200-series - Rehabs

    I'm still more on the thought that while all of the other system is more connected the blue was isolated so they decided to do everything that's easy to access. Come on, red got new cars but up till the 2013 rebuild red was also running 2600s just like the blue and had HORRIBLE infrastructure... The red line got it's major repair in 2013 then in 2014 work started on your new blue so I wish we could stop this "cta is playing favorites" BS when they basically bought a secondhand 100 year old system. Tbh orange line riders were the spoiled ones with the newest track and 3200s if you really wanna press the issue that bad 🙄🙄
  9. Random CTA

    Notice a lot of drivers spend time cracking jokes when switching midroute for a shift change.... Guess cta's providing COMEDIC RELIEF 😂😂
  10. 3200-series - Rehabs

    I think blue line being isolated from the system is part of the neglect
  11. 2005-2009 New Flyer D40LF(Retiring)

    Right the 1000's actually aged pretty well. Hell I forgot about them being so old until it came up here. New flyer definitely came through on this series no issues with speak noise or acceleration save for a select few that rack up mileage here and there between servicing
  12. 2005-2009 New Flyer D40LF(Retiring)

    Yeah I meant to get at that as well cause I don't know if the 6400s that are dead are mostly ex-77th
  13. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    I think he saw a work bus to be honest. They've been working under the L recently on Lake
  14. 2005-2009 New Flyer D40LF(Retiring)

    IF they go in order. Looking at the Nova retirements I see a lot of older ones that should've bit it before others that are still rolling around
  15. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    So it was 1St gen then. 2nd gen would be 7900
