  1. Metra Electric Highliners

    Passed by KYD and notice a diesel gallery card in the yard... looked like a bathroom car but the side of it look like a bomb went off. I tried to get a picture but was unable to.. any info? Also anyone know whats going on with the old highlanders at KYD... they broke up the 4 car train and then few days later put them back parked at the front of KYD.

  3. Detailed 3200s Rehab Progress

    I thought the 3rd rail was 600DC...... also it was under impression that the 5000 series converted DC-AC for traction motors and older cars were just DC. For a mixed fleet for example look at Purple line express and brown line share same tracks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5000_series_(CTA)

    For the past couple of days one of the newer diesel engines has been in the KYD yard... Locomotive 410.. trainman8119 what is going on with this? Also on 211th stop on southwest side of platform near last exit... some type of motion camera with an possible cellular antenna has been installed. So far I only saw one on the whole platform.

    Good info and thank you for that.... Why did they bother with the switch engine... are the drive units in these shot.. I mean they have them on the line.. was curious. Also do you have any other information about the new looking highliner that looks to be a shell in KYD? Also any info on the concrete side walls put on the out drive side of the garage.

  9. Procurement of more gallery cars

    I think they will.... but judging how old these cars are ... maybe want to check out HVAC system etc...
