  1. To the surprise of absolutely no one, the bid opening date has been bumped back again, this time to Friday, June 12, 2020.
  2. The EJE is the East-West track by Matteson, there's a connection to the former IC trackage (the freight line that parallels the ME) there. Fyi: EJE and all its assets and trackage have been under CN ownership since the 2009 merger.

    So apparently Kedzie is still doing school trips on the 62, but with 40 footers which kind of defeats the purpose in my opinion. Here's 1736 and 1675 heading east to start their runs, 7904 was ahead of them.

    I always wanted Chicago to get its 60 footers back, but not under these circumstances.

    Retiring artics before 1000s would be a huge waste of cash. With how lightly they're used compared to everything else, I could see them lasting at least until they're 18-20 years old. If CTA really is desperate to be rid of them so soon, I could see another TA looking at getting their hands on them. For example, St Louis Metro has a bunch of 2004 D60LFs they bought secondhand in 2014 from OC Transpo, they're eventually gonna need replacements.
