  1. On sight operations

    How do you listen to channels? Do you have a radio or use a website? My old website feed was trashed a year ago.
  2. More Bus Moves

    More then likely a few loaners, you can watch them over next few days to a week and determine if they are on loan or now belong to FG. Spring pick happened a few weeks ago so any major shifts would of happened then.
  3. 5000-series - Updates

    More plastic inserts are making their onto the Red Line. 5509 now has them.
  4. More Bus Moves

    I guess due to the weather, there are no artics running today. As a result, 103rd looks to be short and is borrowing busses from 74th and 77th. Northpark and Kedzie looks to be fine.
  5. More Bus Moves

    Not sure if this is any move related but Chicago has no 1000 series busses out today. Just Novas.
  6. 5000-series - Updates

    Looks like the plastic inserts are making a debut on the Redline. 5532 has these plastic inserts. The back part of the seat thankfully is still fabric.
  7. 4000-series DE60LF - Updates - Rehabs

    I should of done my searching. Thanks for the reminder.
  8. 4000-series DE60LF - Updates - Rehabs

    To me, it felt like a smoother and the engine was quieter. I do have to say going from that one to a non updated lighting 4000 was night and day.
  9. 4000-series DE60LF - Updates - Rehabs

    #4099 today had updated lighting like on the 1000 series after their rehabs.
  10. December 2017 Bus Pick

    I haven’t seen advance timetables. Has anyone else?
  11. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    I think the chances of that happening are basically none, they gave the pilot time to play out and the ridership just wasn't there. Those busses would be better utilized on another route or as spares.
  12. More Bus Moves

    6472 looks to be a Community bus now.
  13. Random CTA

    Random thing today. I saw a daytime Red Line run with only 4 cars in service. Is that normal?
  14. 5000-series - Updates

    Caught the charter about 20 minutes ago at Adams/Wabash.
  15. Return of the 11 & 31 Bus

    The 3/N4 mostly happens on Weekends. Most N4 runs pull out from the garage and pull in when done.
