  6. Both were shipped back to NIFL for rebuilding. Not in service, assume at S Shops somewhere (no, I don’t work for CTA any more, but I do still have friends in high places)

  8. 8236, 8324 assigned FG, 7900 showing as assigned 77.
  9. 700-701 back as of 6/19, currently 79 6400s active
  10. Until roadwork done - late Sep+early Oct.
  11. Road diet is a term the "driving is a sin" crowd uses. Make roads narrower. Lawrence Ave Western to Ashland prime example. More congested than ever. Does this discourage use? Of that road, yes, in total, no. Just makes nearby roads more congested too.
  12. Apart from earlier hours on 31 only the usual tinkering
  13. I have a hard time believing F59s have a higher axle load than an SD70ACE or ES44AC. I suspect issue is not out on the line but at Ogilvie itself. However again, CNW used some pretty large steam engines on passenger trains in the 1920s when NWSta was new, and you would think they would have designed it with provision for the biggest power at the time.
  14. More and more PACE is looking like a Three Stooges outfit. Milwaukee Pulse seems to gone off half cocked, who knows when North Shore Phase 2 will happen. Pace turning into The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight???
