    1681 and 1687 on 77th routes. Probably just checked out whatever they had on the grounds.
  2. 2400-series - Service Dates

    You think Green alone is short on card? Seems kind of out of place for it.
  3. 2400-series - Service Dates

    Could of sworn I saw a 6 car 2400 in service on Green Line today to Cottage Grove. Operator kept making announcement at Roosevelt that the train was going to Cottage Grove. Wasn’t able to get numbers.
  4. Random CTA

    Thank you for the replies, but there was no work this weekend and they were still running a temporary schedule. Maybe it was the cold, but I wish that CTA would alert people when they are not planning short turn trains, especially in this cold. You look at Timetable and it shows short turn trains but yet they never show up.
  5. Random CTA

    Yes, but I feel like certain times. This weekend included, they decide not to run the short turns. Thus you can be waiting at Jackson for 20-30 minutes before another train comes.
  6. Random CTA

    My question is who decides the Blue Line frequency span on weekends. On non work weekends, I feel like some weekends they send short turn UIC trains. But like this weekend they just do Forest Park runs. It’s quiet annoying.

    Does anybody know why Red Line has Green Line equipment? Saw 5099 and 5100 pulling into Lake the other day.
  8. 5000-series - Updates

    They are in the process of converting all Red, Yellow and Purple (Pink and Green possibly) seats to be plastic bottom and cloth backing. Kind of a Blue Line lite. Easier to clean and now you know what you could potentially be sitting in.

    Holiday Bus not a bus move.

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

    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.
  12. 5000-series - Updates

    More plastic inserts are making their onto the Red Line. 5509 now has them.
  13. 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.
  14. More Bus Moves

    Not sure if this is any move related but Chicago has no 1000 series busses out today. Just Novas.
  15. 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.
