  1. I would rather not talk about it. Mostly because id like to keep it to myself but also because this isn't the right place to talk about cta
  2. Credit goes to the original owner
  3. Looks like metra will be upgrading the f59's to meet the EPA's tier 3 standards
  4. Couple of f59phis at union station. Currently on mil west line. Past metx 80 and 85 is leading. Missed 88 at the station. Almost all the f59s are in service
  5. I doubt 94 will be at western yard coupled to the other f59s for a long time considering it was just rebuilt along with 201 which is probably already in service. As for the rest of the f59s from amtrak of course those will be held up in the yard for quite a while since some of them were rehabbed 5-6 years ago. Metx 88 (ex cascades/surfliner 465) not long after it was repainted it was put into service since 88 was the last of the 21 ex amtrak f59s to be rehabbed. Only time will tell when 94 gets placed into service.

    1. 8136 moved to 77th and operated as route 2. Does anyone know if 8136 has those screens? 2. An articulated 2013 new flyer bus crashed near wilson
  7. Is 210 being rebuilt after the fire or did it meet the same fate as 215?
  8. Any updates on METX 94?

    Is 4145 still in service? I came across the video of the bus being involved in the blizzard of 2011 in LSD
  10. Metra owns 97-99 (now 94-96) They were sent out to progress rail for rebuild
  11. 94-96 has to be ex GO. Metrolinks f59ph locomotives didn't have the air conditioner above the cab. Either that or they just installed them. And if it is ex metrolink i hope they dont keep their awful mixed horns.
  12. The cta won't be affected but the manufacturer will be after they've delivered the cars to the cta.
  13. I havent seen the 6600's in a while. So it looks like west retired all of its 6600's. Ravinia is the only division with those buses. But not for long since newer buses will be coming in to retire all of the nabi buses and some of the 30ft eldorado buses. And ill bet those 30ft buses will move to Ravinia.
  14. Paint job is still not finished. Give it a week or two till its actually in its full paint job
  15. I take it 6730-6739 have moved back to north
  16. And is it safe to say that all of west's 6600 series buses is retired? If it is that means ravinia is the only division with 6600's
  17. 2708 2710 2712 2718 2741 2750 2814 6219 6224 6255 6263 6267 6271 6274 6289 6292 6294 6305 6306 6307 6308 6314 6317 6320 6321 6322 6323 6326 6327 6329 6331 6332 6333 6341 6343 6344 6348 6349 6350 6351 6354 6355 6359 6360 6362 6364 6370 6373 6376 6379 6381 6382 6385 6386 6388 6390 6392 6396 6402 6410 6414 6415 6419 6421 6426 6427 6430 6443 6448 6464 6471 6478 6490 6492 6501 6502 6504 6535 6544 6547 6556 6559 6561 6603 6614 6631 6665 6669 6675 6707 6715 15503 15507 17515 17520 17522 17523 17539 All these buses have no working wifi I will be updating this list from time to time
  18. The more the bus hits bumps the more it creeks. (Since i did post that i can confirm it) the other complaint in my post is the fact that about 90% of their buses 6323 - 6376 have no working wifi. Only a few like 6375 works since im using it right now. *edit* when 6375 was about to arrive at rosemont the wifi disconnected.
  19. And all ex cascades f59phi's are technically in service. And i say technically because 91 for some reason is coupled with a bunch of the other f59phi's (i may be wrong since it was a while since ive passed western yard) but it ran before.
  20. Now i have my answer. All ex cascades f59phi's are now in service. Spotted 92 in service today.
  21. 2696 moved to north shore
