  1. Yeah I saw it in the background. The story is more than likely true as they have been rehabbing the 200 range locomotives. I wonder how bad of shape they are in.

    Just saw 4 old ME cars arriving in KYD yard being pulled by switcher #4 the cars look to be in a decent shape. Any ideas on what they are doing or where these came from?

    I saw a sanded down VRE with windows masked/taped at KYD today and I saw another VRE same condition but windows not taped but sanded down at Union Station Yard a few weeks ago. Also 7270 is at KYD as well. Both VRE had no existing numbers on them btw

    Metra Alters ME schedule starting Nov 5.... some trains will start two - three minutes earlier or later. Weekend trains bumped as well. They claim it’s to clear up congestion.. Any thoughts on this? I just know since the schedule change on this line Ridership at certain stops have declined

    I thought it was was an 8 but perhaps you are correct.. As all cars where in use

  12. Detailed 3200s Rehab Progress

    I was on the brown line in the cab car seat facing the end of the line... on curves I noticed the trucks and they looked completely different... there seemed to be a lot going on that was new... I have a not soo good picture I will post
  13. Detailed 3200s Rehab Progress

    The other day I noticed some freshly rehabbed cars on the brown line... one interesting thing was that the trucks were different than the other cars. Those trucks had yellow thing by the rail. It looked like the yellow things would sit perfectly on rail if it kneeled. Anyone know whats up with that
  14. 2018 Metra Budget

    Oh ok yes... customers were very upset and I believe because of the metra change now the ridership is low... those passengers would have to wait around an hour for next train which would be pointless. Also, I've noticed less people at usual stops than before.
