  1. New Eldorados?

    @Ricky Rodriguez Confirmed! #6741-45 have begun service.
  2. New Eldorados?

    Seems reasonable but it’s been quite a while since Fox Valley had 40 footers.
  3. 4000-series DE60LF - Updates - Rehabs

    I forgot to mention yesterday that #4186 is a troubled bus due to a burned spot sustained on the right side near the back tire. The cause of that burn is unknown and I couldn't take a shot because I would be trespassing on CTA property (the entrance where 77th's not in service buses enter at on 79th).
  4. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    @andrethebusman Can you please stick with the community guidelines because you last few post is making me wonder, “What on earth am I reading?
  5. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    If you had an opportunity to bring back a route and/or segment of a route, which route(s) would you choose and why? (You can also include a night owl route, express route, Pace route, or you can create an extension and/or cut a segment towards a current CTA/Pace route.) My answer is: 49 Western to be extended to 95th/The Plaza but end at 79th after The Plaza closes. I feel like since 49A South Western was discontinued last year it has been very inconvenient traveling the The Plaza. The 349 is optional but some people don't like paying extra fare if they have a 1 or $28 7-day pass. Why not have some flexibility? 48 South Damen only runs during AM/PM rush hours to The Plaza in which that's not convenient enough for traveling. It should just originate back to 87th.

    I’ll accept your source. Thank you for providing it.
  7. New Eldorados?

    #6740 has begun service. Currently on #571. Keep in mind everybody that at least 60% of the 6700s is possible to replace both 6162s and 6600s at North. So far 53 buses there while 6700s is at #6779 so far, in which that makes a lot of sense to me that North should have 50 of them. It is also a possibility of #6253 and #6259-61 either migrate to West or become retired depending on the outcome of how many 6700s at North. Anybody wants to explain to me why on earth #6701-02 are at Fox Valley???
  8. CTA Rail Service Alerts

    It was a broken running rail at Montrose and that nonsense really disrupted my shift this evening because of trains being all backed up causing me to almost get trapped.
  9. 4000-series DE60LF - Updates - Rehabs

    What about any changes with the engine and transmission?
  10. More 6000's repatriated??

    Why didn’t you say so??? I would’ve been fine with that as long as you clarified that some were yours and got permission from others.
  11. New Eldorados?

    #6729 has begun service currently on #626.
  12. Pace Bus Moves

    #6263 has made its way to West. #6255 and #6258 remain the same at North Shore. Does anybody knows if #6256 is still in service?
  13. More 6000's repatriated??

    No definitive clarification that I was asking for on behalf of those photos. I had no choice but to take them down. It’s really not rocket science to answer a simple question.
  14. Random Metra

    I decided to take some shots of the construction @ Ravenswood. It seems to me that the outbound station is going to look very extraordinary after completion. There's a new partial viaduct @ Leland with very bright lights underneath.
  15. Pace Bus Moves

    #6253 is at North.
  16. The Breakdown Thread

    Don’t forget about #4399 also.

    I decided to create this topic to give all of you an opportunity to express your opinions about me. It can be positive/negative feedback (transit related), what you like and don't like about me, what do I need to improve on, etc. The doors are open.
  18. Pace Bus Moves

    Thank you so much! I was wondering what was going on with that bus all this time.
  19. What's Left for Pace's Orion VI's 6000s?

    Also 307 318 and 322.
  20. What's Left for Pace's Orion VI's 6000s?

    #6069 was on #332 earlier this morning.
  21. New Eldorados?

    Right but @Busjack wondered why River didn't get 6700-6703, in which I really don't know.
  22. garmon757

    Well that sucks!
  23. garmon757

    Thank you!
  24. garmon757

    Yes, I was aware of that! I don’t see any reason why BNSF would not consider you.
