  1. CTA roll sign...

    Heres an old CTA roll sign that I picked up over the weekend. I still havent looked through the whole sign but it looks North Park bus routings. I had never thought a "150" route existed. This looks about late 60s or early 1970s.

    I do once recall while we were refueling our Flx I seem to remember seeing a 9400 GMC at 77th about two years ago. I wondered if they were preserving it It looked in pretty good shape from the view I had

    Those who question me argue with me because they know I’m right! I worked for CTA for eight years! My dad for 27 years! I know the backhanded crap they pull to keep the far northwest side riders traveling on “third hand” looking equipment! It’s a freakin shame! CTA has always practiced this! Believe me if the roles were reversed. You would get a lot of bickering here and on the local media that the south side has outdated equipment. But we’re not hearing any of that are we??? Of course not! New rail cars. New stations. New buses. 95th st station gets a totally new reconstructed terminal. While Jefferson Park. While at the very least, I’m glad the bus terminal is finally is being rebuilt. The train platform gets a few led lights installed and some paint!!! Big deal!! Plus the ratio of new equipment for the south and west sides is greater than the entire northwest side! This is undisputed!!! I’ve hardly seen any of the 8325s up here. All too often I’ve talked to the few operators I still keep in touch with They have said the same thing Ive been saying all along. They’re fed up with th e south and west sides getting the preference while FG gets mostly “hand me downs”. “junk buses”. Just yesterday I met a driver on Irving riding of course a beat up 6700 series. Complain about the amount of junk buses FG has! I wasant surprised!

    This is what I’m saying but some here want to whine and cry and make too much out of it. Geez. Let someone speak their minds!

    Be careful??? LMAO!!! Im so eager to know exactly what you mean by that! I think you’d better be careful! LMAO!!! No “insinuations” if that what you call it! I’m just expressing my thoughts and opinion. Let me speak my peace ! We are allowed to speak our minds on here. So let me speak mine! If that’s an issue for you then maybe you should stop your whining and not comment on my posts!!! Thank you!

    While it’s nice that FG got the majority of the 8325s. It’s still a low number of newer Novas at FG. When you look at the bigger picture. A majority of the 7900s are on the south and west sides. 7900 to about half the 8200s are on south and west side routes. So that only leaves half of 8200-and all 8300s at FG. Very uneven distribution if you ask me. CTA should return the 8200s they took from FG back. I feel at some point knowing CTA and the mayoral elections. I could see CTA removing some new Novas from FG again so that the south and west sides can continue to have more newer buses.

    I’m sure FGs routes are right up there with 103rds. The only light routes are 81W and 85A. The rest of FGs routes are heavy workers I don’t see why FGs old Novas can’t be used at 103rd.
  9. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    They should,just send all the remaining 6400 Novas to 103rd.to finish out their time.

    Glad FG got the new buses. They deserve them! But I can’t help to think what other tricks CTA have up their sleeves As they did with then 8200s. Not long after FG received them. They were “stolen”from FG to give to C. I can’t help to think if CTA will pull this crap again and continue sliding more old 1000s into FG without anyone noticing. It’s like waving the candy in the baby’s face! Let’s see if FG keeps these buses. CTA plays with FG a lot!
  11. 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

    I’m surprised your not taking a beating on here for saying this!
  17. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    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.

    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!
