  1. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Riding the orange line a majority of my life I've seen just about everything on it except the 2200's and 5000's but I do question the durability of the 2600's that are left on the orange line at this point in time, some are beginning to show there age with bad heating,poor lighting and dare I say considerably slower travel times in non slow zones of the orange line. One train (usually I board the front car) I remember being on earlier this week seemed to struggle getting up the 18th street incline and the operator nearly came to a complete crawl of about 5 mph and she seemed a little baffled by it. Once we made it past the incline she could barely get the train to crack 30 mph with all that going on I see #1542 speed by heading southwest and I'm thinking to myself damn maybe taking the bus would of been the better option.
  2. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    I said this before in past topics, maintenance is the reason or along those lines of something else as to why you haven't seen #6838 in service. Also sometimes buses end up going ghost for days at a time on bus tracker so there can be several factors that play a role. Nothing much to worry about. However,if you decided to take a trip to either FG or South Shops boneyard to investigate any further be my guess.
  3. 2005-2009 New Flyer D40LF(Retiring)

    I doubt #1088 will be retired.
  4. 2005-2009 New Flyer D40LF(Retiring)

    I meant to say a reliable deal (typo on my part).
  5. 2005-2009 New Flyer D40LF(Retiring)

    Well he's a younger member so I don't think he understands the real operations that take place with ordering,rehabbing and retiring equipment such as the 100 or so #1000's that are slated for retirement in the next 4 - 5 years from now. Knowing how CTA is by now I doubt 100 will get retired of the jump after seeing how long it took for the #6400's to bite the dust but this overall topic serves no real purpose until CTA gets a liable deal done with these upcoming Electric buses, correct me if i'm wrong though.

    Your wishful thinking will probably never become a reality.
  7. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    He's actually right on technical terms in regards to NOVA as a whole. What CTA has at the moment is there 2nd generation of NOVA's but in terms of bus model this is the 4th Generation of NOVA LFS.
  8. CTA bus simulator releasing soon

    I really appreciate that, also I have some surprises that I've been working on in regards to the Flxible Metro's i've been working on.
  9. OMSI 2: Photo Gallery

    My current project, Making a Flxible Metro E with CTA specs.
  10. OMSI 2: Photo Gallery

    I didn't want to bump an old thread with updates of my personal projects so I decided to make a new one that we all could use if anyone here still plays the game.

  12. More Bus Moves

    #1009 is on Rt.49 as a loaner to North Park from Fg, also there we're a few low #1700s on Rt.62 this morning.
  13. Ouch! Wreck photos!

    Wow I was just on #1413 last weekend on 2 different occasions, the damage doesn't look to bad but I wonder who was at fault for the accident.....
  14. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    If I'm not mistaken some runs on belmont terminate at the belmont station so I don't see where this post warrants 6784 to the retired list unless you have anymore evidence to back up your claim here.

    Same thing as I said before, maintenance is the reason or along those lines of something else. Also sometimes buses end up going ghost for days at a time on bus tracker so there can be several factors that play a role. Nothing much to worry about.
