  1. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    *I caught the new #8347 on Diversey (see photo above). Yes, they have been placed to FG now.
  2. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Yes, the new buses are assigned to Forest Glen. I knew that was expected to occur in the past several weeks.

    GUYS!!! Just caught #8347 on the #76!!!! A rare catch! The 8325s are now in service!
  4. Random CTA

    The driver had to put #6564 out of service and #8267 was the transfer bus 😡

    #1704 is serving the #76 now
  6. New Flyer DE40LF 804 Out Of Service

    😢 Farewell 800-series. (2006-2019)
  7. New Flyer DE40LF 804 Out Of Service

    Today, there is no sign of an 800-series running according to the Maths tracker. I guess on most days it will 'quietly' be in service on any street, based on Kedzie garage routes. When these buses begin to retire, the CTA will have it's history preserved...
  8. More Bus Moves

    OK... I guess that's true. It's not on the tracker screen today.
  9. New Flyer DE40LF 804 Out Of Service

    Wow, so that means the 800-series will soon to be retired as well in favor of more electric bus deliveries by the CTA.
  10. More Bus Moves

    Bus #1991 is on the #84 Peterson right now. So rare.
  11. More Bus Moves

    According to Maths tracker, yep you're right! This is rare once again. I think it's either a loaner or will be permanent while CTA is aiming for the new Nova 8325's to be in service.
  12. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Oh, I was a bit wrong. #6746 was the one that had transmission defects.
  13. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Yep. And now that we got all-new sets of Novas ready to hit the streets, CTA will move more New Flyers to FG to completely retire the 6400s. I can't wait!
  14. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    That's also true! These buses are now "piece of garbage" when it was used for more than 15 years. I'll call them, "the s-s-scrap."
  15. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    One of the 6400s is starting to get dilapidated. When I was on the #86 heading to school, I think bus number #6846 ran into a transmission problem which caused the bus to "skid" and wasn't able to run as fast. So the driver told the passengers to get off and transfer to another bus behind, which was #8300. Even yesterday, on the #76 the traction was not working too well on an snowy road and had to be out of service right before it reached Narragansett. That kinda sucks, doesn't it?
