    If that was a bigger bunch like 25 total that moved then yeah I could see that coming full circle,however its to early to tell with a bus here and a bus there getting moved or perhaps loaned.

    No,its has a skinnier font.

    1422 also has a different font.
  4. The Breakdown Thread

    The driver of the car literally wanted to play a game of chicken with the driver of the bus to see who would stop first even though Ashland is a main street and 90th is a side street, we were already in the flow of traffic moving at about 30 mph or so at that point, everything happened within a split second. The bus operator couldn't believe along with the rest of the passengers that the driver would just pull out to on-coming traffic the way he did but then again he was 20 so young and dumb was my first assessment, however 90th and Ashland is a hot-spot for bad drivers not yielding to on-coming traffic on Ashland. Its even worse during rush hour because most drivers on 90th don't like waiting for traffic to clear before proceeding through the intersection so it creates a lot of tense moments. Another irony I forgot to mention is the driver of the car bought the car an hour before the accident only to crash in front of the dealership on the corner.
  5. The Breakdown Thread

    This is first accident i've ever been on and the bus itself from my initial thoughts while on-board took some major damage but after getting off and seeing the aftermath I was surprised to say the least. The car is obviously totaled and the driver of the car I hope gets charged for failing to yield to on-coming traffic among other things, he was ok but very shaken by the entire ordeal.Everybody on-board which was about nine of us were ok but highly upset at the driver of the car. The irony of this entire incident is the ad wrap itself.
  6. New Flyer DE40LF 804 Out Of Service

    #804 was out a lot last week still looked like it was in decent shape. However if it is indeed at South Shops from the rumor you heard it is either there for retirement or maintenance. Also you don't have to make a separate thread on things you've heard from rumors. Theirs a better way to go about posting things on the forum.
  7. More Bus Moves

    I found this to be quite odd today since there isn't any high volume of people out today. Could #1838 be a loaner to 74th since Chicago has #8011?
  8. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    #6846 was probably my favorite #6800 when it was at 74th a few years ago, pretty fast back then but for a 2002 LFS to still be kicking it that strong.

    Hopefully by the mid spring i'll release an update for it along with map.
  11. More Bus Moves

    Why would it be there for training when Chicago has 100 8100's there at its disposal?
  12. More Bus Moves

    Possible loaner my friend.
  13. Last TMC RTS

    #4550 is the only one left and I haven't seem much of it since 2014.

    Oh yeah I totally forgot about Kedzie.

    Getting back to the topic at hand most likely the glen will get the last 25 because in theory it would make the most sense to a degree. The glen receives 25 8300's and ships off nothing as result of retiring 25 6400's to compensate for the gain. I'm not saying it will happen exactly as that but with 77th shipping off a few of its 7900's takes 103rd out of the game and the rest of the garages have there batch of 100 or so 7900's minus NP. So in theory giving the glen the last 25 makes the most sense. I also agree with Sams point on the entire Old equipment vs New equipment agenda that has been heatedly discussed over the past 6 to 8 years. Each side has valid points but at the end of the day each garage is responsible for maintaining its equipment properly regardless if its new or old, if the streets are torn up on some routes, or if passengers decide to act reckless and etc. You have to work with what you're given that's just how life is sometimes. We all can agree on this though,The CTA is slowly but surely making the necessary improvements for the entire city whether you're a northsider or a southsider,I'm not saying its a massive overhaul that everyone likes but things are improving to some degree.
