    When I'm not involved with CTA I'm usually involved in the arcade industry traveling to shows and expos showing off my babies (games and cabinets) I spend alot of time with emulators and VP cabinets. VPforums.org is one of the best sites I've come across and the love just grows and grows. The longer you are a member, the more stuff you learn like programming and art and the possibilities are endless. I guess I'm just a sucker for nostalgia. I am also an animal lover, not the ones that ride CTA though!

  1. More Bus Moves

    Don't know what was up at fg today. First I see wb1 going up there then I see the community bus coming south. Truck #270 was up there too but didnt carry a bus into or out of the yard. Btw i saw wb1 pulling out from under the elevated ns structure at Irving south to west last week. Maybe something to do with Wilson but it's done. I saw the Sunnyside entrance a few weeks ago so your guess is as good as mine.
  2. New Eldorados?

    Hmm I wonder how many #6700's are going to be at ns? Spotted #6725 on the edens. Lake cook rd is looking awfully new with all these newer blue liveried buses. I'm out here by Walgreens hq and haven't had the chance to check out the bus action. Four buses in a row all Eldorado passed me around lake cook and wilmot. I'm try to find the bus cage on lake cook but I don't see it it's around us 41 right or Skokie valley rd?
  3. Detailed 3200s Rehab Progress

    #3257-58 has reentered service on the brown line fully rehabbed
  4. 4000-series DE60LF - Updates - Rehabs

    Is there a link that says this? Pardon my lack of knowledge, I haven't been on this subject lately
  5. So I got my renewal for ventra. It says to give them the same phone number you used 4 years ago. I don't know how I'll renew this I have changed phone numbers probably 3 times since then. Cell numbers change rapidly. I wonder why they couldn't go by address.
  6. Random CTA

    Saw a new emergency truck yesterday that was a ram 2500. Funny looking truck for an emergency truck. Truck said it was 266.
  7. New Eldorados?

    Chandler has to be affiliated with Pace though as #2603 was there and it's not a new bus. Unless it has an extended warranty. Funny I haven't seen NABis there so maybe they are working with Eldorado National.
  8. New Eldorados?

    So that's the actual bus in process of delivery!! Lol!! I don't know if Chandler buses have plates or not. You would think that would be done in south holland. I never heard of a bus being delivered to a maintenance facility either. You would think south Holland at least has to receive the bus and take ownership unless Chandler is doing that but it's an unorthadoxed procedure to say the least.
  9. Random CTA

    Must have had a team meeting this morning at Sayre and the blue line. There were about 20-30 men on the ROW. 4 cta trucks were on the shoulder.
  10. O’Hare Express

    Yeah you might think that this is science fiction but Dubai actually has started up a drone service. They claim to actually have manufactured a car that can fly and drive automonously. So it's coming, when is anyone's guess. It's all on youtube. As far as automonous cars, Tesla claims to have the capability to drive automonous on the highway now. It plans on installing full automonous capability through a software update in its cars.
  11. New Eldorados?

    Hmm. Yeah I was saying maybe you saw a test bus not being delivered. One way you would know for sure is to look at the license plates. I don't think they can do an Illinois registration in California but I could be wrong.
  12. New Eldorados?

    Maybe it was testing.
  13. O’Hare Express

    Yeah but how successful will this be? I can't help but think of Boston's big dig where there were many cost overruns and the project moved at a snail's pace. When digging underground there are many unforeseen obstacles such as utilities and such. Actually a sky service is actually more smart and it will be the wave of the future in about 15 years. With capabilities of 500 mph it could even put the airlines in jeopardy. Check this out you could actually be running an express service to a dinosaur service that is no longer viable except for maybe intl. Flights.

    So then they are at a stalemate. Let's get real folks if they can't use existing infrastructure how will this get funded. They can't even build the Dan Ryan extention. Elon Musk would probably be more Interested in a automated drone service than this. Flying through the air needs no infrastructure lol!!
  15. O’Hare Express

    Well the press release said that any service would be viable even from union station so I'm assuming he's not talking about the cta.
