  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Finally CTA has assigned 3200s to the Blue Line. They should assign 5000s. alongside it.
  4. 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 The Jefferson Park, Harlem and Rosemont stations are rust covered dirty and outdated.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! !
  5. 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!
  6. 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???

  8. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Apparently the driver wasant aware that the fueling connection wasant compatible with the pumps at the fuel site. I had to get out and explain that he would have to go to CTA and speak with them about it.

    Found this today at a city fuel site off of 35th st. Got to look inside. It is #6539 There was a second bus. Didnt see that one up close.
  10. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Plain and simple, FG dosent get the respect they should by contrast to other garages! They seem to get shunned more often as opposed to the other garages in the system. You will never see this at 77th, 103rd or Chicago ave!

    Its because the garage dosent get any respect Plain and simple!
  12. 700-series XE40 - Deliveries & Assignments

    That's weird because the buses were displaying "54 Cicero to North" another had "80 Irving Park to Cumberland"
  13. 700-series XE40 - Deliveries & Assignments

    Today heading home from work. I spotted three electric buses running down Clinton st at the post office building, all wrapped They were definitely CTA because they all had white LED route signs showing. They had very curved rear ends

    My gosh I wish buses sounded like this!!! Closest we would probably get were the GMC 5307s
  15. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    When do you plan to be in Chicago with the bus?
