  1. 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.
  2. The Breakdown Thread

    The burning of #700 will be in this topic. Carry on.
  3. Detailed 3200s Rehab Progress

    Get your transit act together private!!!
  4. CTA Bus Garage Rosters

    #1195 is OOS due to a deadly head on crash on 58th/King Drive last might. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-cta-bus-car-crash-20170908-story.html
  5. New Eldorados?

    Wait what??? #2378 was a 35-footer??? How can that be???
  6. New Eldorados?

    2005 NABIs 6262-6322 might played a factor.
  7. New Eldorados?

    Well that makes a ton of sense!
  8. New Eldorados?

  9. New Eldorados?

    I don't understand why 15500s and 17500s weren't 6700s or higher. I'm just not a fan of 5 digits.
  10. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    @artthouwill and @Busjack I have to remove some of y'all posts to keep this topic relevant.
  11. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    Northbound platform is back to its regular scheduling program!
  12. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

  13. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    Well here I am around 5 AM and the northbound platform is almost back to its regular programming. Trains should be on that side very soon to begin work on the southbound platform. Also and key note, the entire Red Line is restricted from operating 4 cars during overnight hours until this project is complete.
  14. 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.
  15. Return of the 11 & 31 Bus

    Fair enough.
  16. Return of the 11 & 31 Bus

    I bet it wouldn't fail you if Chicago Garage would've helped out, especially during rush hour s and weekends. The interlining would've been perfect with #37 at Fullerton but I guess they couldn't afford it.

    @chicagopcclcar and @widecab5 I want to thank both of you for providing extraordinary information in regards of the 6000s.

    Today's work!
  21. Wilson Red/Purple Line Station Rebuild

    Yes indeed. I'm looking forward to see that when it opens.
  22. Wilson Red/Purple Line Station Rebuild

    Well, I haven't heard anything crazy going on up there but I will say that nothing happened to me everytime I go out there.
  23. Wilson Red/Purple Line Station Rebuild

    @BusHunter It's beautiful at night!
  24. New Eldorados?

    17521 is confirmed. Spotted it after the holiday.
  25. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    Sorry guys but my new job has been taking up a toll as of lately and I'm in the process of getting a camera soon because of storage conflict with my phone.
