  1. 2400-series - Service Dates

    From a nostalgic point, I agree. I miss the variety in older series consists that the green, pink, and red lines used to see. All-5000's gets boring real quick.

    Looks like we might have found an explanation for your sighting:

    Looks like car 2347 has been extensively modified by Goose Island into a mobile beer trailer! Currently on display at the Chicago Auto Show. Pics and more info courtesy of the Chicago L Facebook page ...

    I mean, hey— I did mention that I’m not really a bus guy 🤷‍♂️. @artthouwill, thanks for the info.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/PetroleYUM/permalink/1857359031042962/ Not really a bus guy but came across this on facebook. CTA bus spotted 800 miles away in the mountains of New York. Any ideas what it’s doing out there? Below is a screenshot of the post just in case the link doesn’t work.
  6. CTA 'L' Rosters

    Last week, they were filming some sort of TV show or movie using 4 2600's on the NSML. They were running on track 1, back and forth between Wilson and Morse. The head car had its right side windows papered over with some sort of green screen. Perhaps these were the four seen in laid up in the Howard Yard recently? I have attached some photos below. (Also on a side note-- anyone know what they may have been filming?)

    Where can we access these slow zone maps?

    Perhaps because I recorded it "vertically" via my smartphone, and the computer seems to prefer horizontal videos

    It has been going southbound from Howard to some unknown point down the NSML, then coming back up on the same track ~15 minutes later, pretty much everyday around 11:00am for the past week. Here is a video I took of it crossing Sheridan Road off Devon ave. Any ideas why? IMG_5131.MOV
  10. Random CTA

    The cta hastily made an announcement ~24 hours ago via Twitter with a link to a page on their website. Rides were to be organized via tickets that could be RSVP'd for online, which quickly sold out. Sad to hear that it was later canceled.

    We can now confirm led run number signs on 3458, thanks to Jesus Mendoza’s post on the Chicago L facebook page.
  12. 2600-series - Service Dates

    Yes, LED signs were installed quite recently...
  13. 3200-series - Rehabs

    The only mention of the 100 2600 rehabs I could find was this post by @Busjack, and the solicitation only calls for parts to rebuild the traction motors? Therefore I'm not sure if roll sign replacements are on the list for rehab work...
  14. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Can't confirm. That was the only photo I took
  15. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Caught them on the Orange Line, 09/08/2018.
