  1. Really? Wow. Would’ve thought they learned something the first time
  2. Second time in less than a week at this location. Seems like something larger that needs to be fixed
  3. Ugh, we don’t need more of the crappy 2600s on the Brown line.
  4. I Saw 4271 and 4272 traveling south over the Wells street bridge today around Noon from my office. I didn't see them head back North or West on Lake, so maybe they went South through the Tower 12 junction?
  5. Wouldn’t fair use allow pictures to be posted regardless of source?
  6. I got to go on 2348 yesterday. It is on the roof of 1K Fulton. Looks a little different these days, but still has many of the classic features.
  7. I forgot to credit the article this photo appeared in: http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20170620/BLOGS04/170629981/photos-united-centers-new-madhouse-team-store Can't wait to see it in person. I thought about that, but it looks way too detailed to be a reproduction. If you look closely at the door, it has the section of rubber edging that was installed later. Also, the peeling don't cross between cars sticker seems like something they wouldn't have put on a reproduction.
  8. Looks like a retired 2600 has found a home in the new Bulls/Hawks store at the United Center. Can't tell the actual number because they replaced it with 555
  9. If they want to run 10 car trains on the red, they'd need to extend at least some of the loop stations so they can accommodate the trains when there are issues in the subway and they have to go over the top
  10. These cars are so boring. It's a slightly nicer 5000 which was a slightly nicer 3200 which was a slightly nicer 2600, etc. I wish government agencies weren't so stuck in their ways and could innovate. The one feature I wish they had was passenger operated door opening buttons like you see in Europe. It would be nice to not sit at a station in the winter with the doors open for 5 minutes.
  11. Regular Brown line rider as well and I've noticed the same. Not sure the hold-up. Also still no LED run boxes.
  12. I've. Noticed that before. Been like that awhile. Not sure what the story is.
  13. 2541 has made it's final trip to the roof of a building under construction in Logan Square. A bunch of other pictures and more information are located here: http://chicagoist.com/2016/04/07/photos_new_luxury_logan_square_rent.php
  14. Crains is reporting that CSR has in fact won with a bid that was $200 million lower than Bombardier http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20160309/BLOGS02/160309813/-1b-cta-contract-calls-for-train-cars-built-in-pullman-by-chinese-firm
  15. Very interesting. There was one guy in a red jacket who throws himself on the floor clearly after the actual collision.
