    CTA 'L' Rosters

    @sw4400 @BusHunter I need one of you or both to pm me so I can provide an updated roster for the Blue, Orange, and Brown Lines.

    I was about to say mid-life rehabs on the 5000s but yeah, can’t couple 5s and 7s due to two different technologies and systems. It wouldn’t be a good idea in this era at all.

    There are talks about working with Blue, Red, Green, Brown, and Orange Lines about car assignments. The Blue Line are supposed to get the remaining 3200s from the Brown Line by the end of this year in an equal exchange for the 2600s and possibly receive up to 100-120 5000s from Red and Green Lines when there’s a good amount of 7000s on the rails. Brown and Orange Lines are projected be fully 2600s around next year to ease on the mileage and preparation for retirement due to the fact that it’s easy and efficient to transfer all of them to Skokie Shops for scrapping preparations. 7000s are projected to officially begin service on Red, Purple, Orange, and Brown Lines around 2022, between 50-100 percent completion of the RPM Project, or after testing on all lines in which I don’t have an official date yet. Keep in mind that the Blue Line cannot receive the 7000s until there are sufficient amount of substations on the Congress Branch and/or a major overhaul of the entire branch (also applies to the 5000s). The majority of the branch are beyond grave conditions and it might take quite some time to develop a massive project similar to both Red South and RPM Projects.

    Until they build substations and do a major overhaul south from Racine towards Forest Park, the Blue Line isn’t getting any new equipment nor having 5000s run on a consistent basis. The track conditions are at an alarming rate of deterioration.

    That’s a negative mate @Aiden Tabucic, especially due to fact that I’m a CTA rail employee and absolutely no phones are allowed on the training floors.

    It’s begins when every qualified operator, switchmen, and supervisors are successfully trained to operate them. There’s no set date.
