  1. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    Well technically yea it is for the rail operators and flagmen but bus Operators go there too to have their fallback. I'm sure the new place will be bigger for both bus and rail lol.
  2. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    As a bus operator I'm excited how the break room is going to look lol hopefully more room 👍🏽👍🏽 lol.
  3. More Bus Moves

    You're right I definitely misread it my apologies 👍🏼.
  4. More Bus Moves

    Those buses been over here at 74th for like a yr now lol since the last swapocalypse.
  5. More Bus Moves

    1601 is at kedzie instead of Chicago. I even saw the k sticker in the window.
  6. Up to 45 Electric Buses

    Sadly now days it's not too many bus manufacturers left besides NF, Gillig, Nova, and Eldorado right??. I personally wish Flixibles and Orions were still in business. Those buses looked nice and were good buses too for the authorities who ordered them.
  7. Detailed 3200s Rehab Progress

    The rehashed 3200's look great I still have yet to ride 1 since then but I'll try to get a ride in sooner than later. But this is also random but as a life long cta fan I love to see the 2600's coupled with the 3200's they just look so good together. Especially when you have 4 of the same belly cars and the other 4 are the leading and trailing cars I love to see that combination. And it's rare now days to see that the Orange Line and ocsssional Brownage trip is the only place where you'll see that. Once the 2600's are all retired we probably will never see that again since the 7000s won't be able to couple with the 5000s 😌 lol.
  8. More Bus Moves

    Ok well that explain why im currently on 1028 as a 94 lol. For me its good to be in a 103rd assigned bus lol I miss it there cant wait for the next system pick so I can go back home to my garage 😊😊.
  9. More Bus Moves

    Just saw 1563 at 69th and western heading northbound. Im not sure if it was a 74th or NP run cause I didn't catch the run number but maybe more bus transfers perhaps?
  10. 7000-series - Procurement

    I like how these cars look they look like a updated 2200 series car which is awesome. I also like how cta still keeping the traditional look besides the slight change of the end caps (not including the blue) I for 1 am not ready for a radical change to the exterior just yet and it seems cta isn't either lol. The interior looks cool cool except for that single back to back seat on the right. Hopefully this is the final design the black hopper windows look awesome as well 😊😊👍👍.
  11. 7000-series - Procurement

    For the life of me I don't understand why would cta chose not to make the 7000's compatible with the 5000's. I mean if you're staring a new generation of rail cars why not make them compatible that way you can mix the fleet up for different lines. Do you guys think it's a good idea to make them compatible or not? I would love to know what you guys think of it.
  12. Spring Pick 2017

    YES!!!!! This is great stuff 👍👍
  13. More Bus Moves

    I seen 2 1900's at 74th last night. 1919 was on the 49 and was also my leader so I looked at the run number to double check before she pulled off from Berwyn to head back south and 1905 was at the garage when I pulled in. It's probably nothing but in case it is something I wanted to let you guys know lol.
  14. More Bus Moves

    I agree lol i dont miss the artics at all lol but ill be back at 103rd next system pick lol. But I hope 77th get artics again simply because they're the spoiled garage out the 7. They get what they want and take as they please lol it will be good for them to get artics again and keep them this time lol.
  15. More Bus Moves

    Well as you guys know im currently at 74th. I was asking clerk if I could help with the bus transfer for tomorrrow which I cant because I already have a run but anyway before she said I couldnt do it, she asked if I ever drove a artic and of course I have with me coming from 103rd. So now the question is now will 74th be getting artics since the operators here have to have artic driving experience in order to transfer buses. Or maybe they just need all the help they can get. I know 74th dont have the room for them tho so maybe its 77th who will be getting artics again lol.
