  1. Why are there only white and red destination lights (if that's what they are called)?
  2. So......does anyone know what happened to Busjack?
  3. http://www.metro-magazine.com/rail/news/733264/cta-crrc-sifang-mark-hiring-of-first-railcar-assembly-employees?utm_source=email&utm_medium=enewsletter&utm_campaign=20190305-NL-MET-Express-BOBCD190227004&omdt=NL-MET-Express&omid=1004712524&ajs_uid=6012E6689390B7Z&oly_enc_id=6012E6689390B7Z&ajs_trait_oebid=3671F9146356B0M
  4. Does anyone know how much adding (or subtracting) a car on an individual train would add/subtract the cost of operating that train? Maybe adding more trains with less cars to offset the cost would help. I'm sure it would not even be close to a 1:1 savings, but may help justify.
  5. I wonder why they painted it back????
  6. And here it is at 5:37 heading north. Bonus points to anyone who can guess what street my place is on!!
  7. OK...not crazy. Here it is going IN to Ogilvie Station at 5:14. My guess is it will leave at 5:35
  8. I will look today. Does anyone know if it was painted back or am I losing my mind?
  9. I recently moved into an apartment in River North with a great view of the UP North line. I thought I saw 553 or 555 painted in the original yellow and green colors and now I can't seem to see that train in the AM or PM, although I don't know which train it is. Anyone have an update?
  10. That would be great if there was one in each car. But what about just an audio announcement such as the one on CTA buses when the door opens? That would certainly be less expensive
  11. Yes I was talking about the Milwaukee North line. However I did take the North Central to Ohare last week which was in track 3 for that 5:10 run only. They could put up monitors that show the next train before it gets there and what stops it makes. Giving people time to get to the next track. Maybe even displaying the engine or coach number. At the least, how about a digital sign displaying the train run...similar to the cta?
  12. Has it ever been discussed to add some kind of destination signs? I have recently started using the western avenue station I never realized how many trains go through there!
  13. As of yesterday, they were still there. 7600's coming soon????
