    Nice site. Looks like a lot of work went into it. However, I don’t think the run number series are correct.
  2. CTA Transit Times archives

    Thanks for the memories. I started CTA in 59 and my first job there was being a traffic checker. Looking through the November 59 archives I spotted a photo of my supervisor giving me instructions at the corner of North & Narragansett. Passenger counts at that time was visually.

    I ask why Chicago borrowed Kedzie a Nova 8190 instead of a 1000 Flyer. I do not recall Kedzie ever being assigned new Nova`s so can a driver be assigned one without training?

    I looked it up in the Tribune archives and there it was. Its remarkable that the car in the upper left did not fall to the ground. Thanks again for the info.

    Thanks Busjack. My logic was the same especially regarding the CA&E as they operated to the loop on CRT/CTA tracks also.

    Not sure if this question belongs here but, some time ago I was told that Rapid Transit/CTA personal operated North Shore trains south of Howard. Was this a fact?
