  1. 3200-series - Rehabs

    While all the updates were happening on all these lines you state, The Blue remained almost completely unchanged in over 30 years! All the old equipment is usually shipped over to the Blue. Time has stood still on the Blue! My point is CTA should be spending its resources better by making sure all areas of the city are entitled to updated equipment and service! The Blue was totally neglected! So Im sorry if you do not share my opinion but thats my thoughts on it!
  2. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Its a complete joke! The Blue should have had updated cars like the 3200s, which I love personally! Years ago!!! This was a way overdue issue! CTA was allowing the for the 2600s to fall apart including the stations for too many years! Now finding out from a CTA worker, the line is not equipped to handle the 5000s alongside 3200s I told him, "Why am I not surprised???" Even he was telling me how long CTA has neglected the line while others saw many upgrades! He told me that CTA puts the Blue at "the back of the line" when it comes to priorities!
  3. 3200-series - Rehabs

    I had been suggesting it for the last few years! Taking a beating from some on this site! But I didnt care! Im just glad CTA FINALLY is paying some very long overdue attention to the Blue line instead of all the attention and resources going to the Red and Green lines
  4. Mystery Bus

    If my memory recalls I seem to remember a film called "Nothing in Common" with Tom Hanks and Jackie Gleason. (No. he didnt play a bus driver in this one!) Lol It was filmed in Chicago I recall a scene when JG was driving along supposedly on Michigan av when he struck a CTA bus I think this was the bus. I wasant CTA at all.

    Thanks for sharing! Finally glad CTA is getting off their lazy butts and start paying some attention to the Blue line This was way way overdue!
  6. Supplementary 5000s on Blue next pick

    That’s the Pink! I’m referring to the Blue line!
  7. Your New Blue - O'Hare Branch Rehab

    Totally agree! I personally don’t mind the seating arrange,ent on the 5000s. I just like to see newer equipment for a change. The 3200s I’ve always loved. So I’m satisfied with the 3200s movement. But CTA could always do better!!!
  8. 3200-series - Rehabs

    I have yet to see a 5000 series train on the Blue! We need some phot proof of this.
  9. Supplementary 5000s on Blue next pick

    I’ll just bet the 5000s will make their way to the Blue Line When the 7000s arrive. The Red line of course will as always get first crack! The Red lines 5000s will be shipped over to the Blue. I don’t see the Blue line getting 7000s. CTA doesn’t give the Blue line the attention it so badly needs!
  10. Supplementary 5000s on Blue next pick

    What will probably happen is the 7000s will go to the Red Line All the beat up 5000s will get shipped to the Blue Lline!
  11. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Finally CTA has assigned 3200s to the Blue Line. They should assign 5000s. alongside it.
  12. Your New Blue - O'Hare Branch Rehab

    I totally agree with you! Pigheaded management! Unfortunately CTA has a history of placing too much of its attention and resources on the Red and Green lines. The Blue Line if you ride it has been falling apart for decades. They haven’t had a railcar replacement since the early 1980s. I can still remember the day the line opened up to OHare airport. Sept 3, 1984! Using brand new 2600 series cars. Those very same cars are still on the line while the rest of the system has been upgraded and re equipped with newer cars. IMO, CTA Has badly neglected the Blue line for some reason for too many years. The Jefferson Park, Harlem and Rosemont stations are rust covered dirty and outdated. CTA should be equally placing all its resources in all areas of the city, not just on a few areas. Shame on CTA for the way it practices equal Transit service that benefits everyone! !
  13. Your New Blue - O'Hare Branch Rehab

    FINALLY!!! Pigheaded CTA manage,ent putting some attention on the long very long neglected Blue Line! 3200s are now finally in service on the Blue! It Only took the CTA 34 years to update the line!
  14. CTA Bus Garage Rosters

    Looking at that video Theres no doubt of course that bus was traveling at a high rate of speed! This operator is clearly at fault! That should be the number #1 question! This operator obviously had no control of through this intersection! A professional and safe operator would have had good control of this bus which could have avoided such a violent crash. Any thoughts???
