    #6511 was leaving Joliet eastbound on I-80 this morning at 10:50 AM.

    Interesting. I never actually looked that closely.
  3. Changes are coming

    Also: Rock Island midday express discontinued.

    They still used full wraps for the new I-90 buses, but I-55 is established by now. It's cheaper and easier to do a partial wrap. Plus now you can actually see out the windows.

    The logo is just below the word "shoulder". If you look closely you can see it partially behind the fence bar. There are no other markings on the side other than the white stripe and fleet number.

    I finally got a good look at both 6977 and 6978. They do not have a full wrap, only the white stripe. The Pace express logo is on the stripe below "Authorized to use the shoulder".

  8. Rail Service Alerts-Discussion Thread

    Yellow line had bus substitution this weekend. Here they are replacing the switch at Dempster. These guys look like they were wondering why I was sticking my phone through the fence:

    @Busjack already reported on the outcome of the board meeting he attended. If you believe him, they do need to be wrapped. But 6510-12 were not wrapped, which I don't have an explanation for.

    I thought I saw it in person earlier so thanks for confirming. Undoubtedly it has been replaced by the new MCIs.

    I got a better look at 6977 and it did actually have the lettering on the white stripe, but was definitely missing the large Pace Express logo on the side.

    16409 seen in service in Wheeling.

    I'm sure that's the one. What makes it more unusual is 6979 already had the lettering on the white stripe when I photographed it at South Holland. Maybe they're in a rush to get 6510-12 to where they should be.

    I saw an MCI today (I assume one of the new ones) deadheading south on IL53 through Romeoville at about 6:30 PM. I saw the right side of it, Interestingly it was wrapped except for the lettering. It had the white stripe toward the rear, but it didn't say "Authorized to use the shoulder" on the stripe. It did not have the Pace express logo either. 6510-12 have been running unwrapped, so it is not "impossible" for them to be on those routes. Has anyone seen one of the unwrapped buses actually driving on the shoulder?
