  1. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    There seems to be more and more NFs popping up at FG. So those who say that FG may not get the new Novas. You may be right! I’m putting my bets that they won’t get them

    Pretty cool place! I went there last year for fire dept training. Learning the emergency features on both buses and trains and how to deal with emergency situations

    Wow. A lot of “wasted false hot air” in your statement

    I’m surprised your not taking a beating on here for saying this!

    So have these new 8325s found a home yet anywhere? I’m still looking around to see if they’re on any FG routes. I live near FG. I’m looking for either the new Novas or more NFs. Let’s see where this goes!!!! I’m very curious!!!! My bets are on more NFs.

  11. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Exactly!!! You Wont!
  12. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Most likely thats what will happen! Regardless what others on here think!
  13. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    OK! Lets go back in time to see how far back the problems with the Blue Line have stretched!!!!!

    I worked at FG from 1999-2005! Say what you want! Im sticking by my facts!!!

    So where and when does SEPTA have to do with CTA bus operations. I dont care about SEPTA! I never brought that in to the conversation! It has no relevance here!
  16. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Well, it appears all garages should have its share of "junk" equipment! Im sure if the situations were reversed, I wouldnt be getting so much static Im recieving here!i!
  17. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    No, Ill stand firm with my statement because it is factual If thats a problem for you, Oh well !!! I cant speak for the west side riders and I wont pretend that I know! But I know what Im talking about. Forest Glen was my garage and I was proud to work there. So please, Dont insult my intelligence!
  18. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Forest Glen has a around 250 buses assigned there. Only less than 100 are new Novas plus a large number of "hand me down" NFs from other garages! CTA retiring old buses with more old buses! Which is usually the standard norm for FG. Not much of an upgrade if you ask me!!! Meanwhile, 7900s 8000s 8100s 8200s assigned to, 77th, 103rd, 74th, Chicago ave!!! Need I say more???
  19. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Thats Just what Ive been saying all along!!! FG will continue to operate more NF "hand me downs" The 8325s wont go to the Glen!!! Ive been associated with FG as far back as 1986 when my dad transferred there from the North Ave Garage. I know some of the history And one complaint that operators there have voiced is the fact that FG rarely gets any new buses. They would always say the "south side" or the "west side" always get the newer buses. History has shown that FG dosent get the attention it should be getting in terms of newer equipment.
  20. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I will be super surprised if FG gets these new buses. Knowing CTA. They will pull something underhanded so that the south and west sides continue to have a higher number of new buses. While FG continues to get old NFs. They should return the 8200 they stole from FG.
  21. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Theses won’t go to FG. They will most likely go to Chicago 77th or 103rd. FG had a bunch of 8200s stolen from them to give to Chicago ave. FG will get NF “hand me downs” to replace the remaining 6400s. Typical CTA practice!
  22. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I highly doubt the 8325s will go to FG. FG had a bunch of their 8200s stolen to give to Chicago ave. They will go to Chicago. 77th or 103rd. FG will just get more beat up NFS.
  23. I was looking at some footage of the 1967 Oak Lawn tornado I saw some still shots of buses mangled, crushed and overturned. What bus system was this that operated in this area at the time? I know today is Pace Southwest Div.

    Wow! Interesting! Thank you all for the info!
  25. 3200-series - Rehabs

    I hope they keep the both series separate on the Blue! I love seeing an 8 car set of 3200s! Seeing the bright LEDs and destination signs saying "OHare" Makes me proud of the Blue line! Im content we have the 3200s I love that series!
