  1. You can thank all xmas eBay/Amazon/Online ordering for those extra shifts @ UPS and the same. It ALL trickles down to everyone. Including our fellow bus drivers
  2. I agree new 7000 series front/end caps look A LOT like the 2400 series lol
  3. OT. Looking at those front wheels on the Bluebird School bus, I can tell its OLD !!! Brings back grade school memories from the 90's lol
  4. Legal hold=LONG LONG LONG while !!!
  5. Just curious are there ANY Orion 1's left ?? I saw a thread last year with 2378 covered in snow @ South holland garage
  6. Your best bet is to try facebook marketplace or ebay for a used motorola radio or scanner I believe Motorola is what they use ? since its a local company (schaumburg) ??
  7. That bad boy is almost 50 years old lol !!! If it made it this far and seeing how METRA is scouting/purchasing 2nd hand locos due to so called "lack of funds" and increase service, It would make more sense just to keep it and rebuild it ?? Another vote for nostalgi purposes since it will be the ONLY in-service operating F40C left in the US !!! Just my 2 honest abe's
  8. Ya that sucks. Luckily I don't have to worry about any old NABI junk in my area
  9. I agree that's a mega-diesel !! Never thought we'd see 6 axle locomotives again on Metra lines lol Is METRA planning to run 8-15 car consists lol ??? Here's a "Preview" of what's to come lol
  10. Wraps on new buses.....meh. Shame PACE isn't running any ACTUAL historical buses Don't they have a few Orion 1's at south shops ?? and Fishbowl Nortran 460 ??? Would be cool to see those old dogs running around Dave
  11. That board meeting was hilarious, Those "Pencil pushers" on the board really have NO clue about their operations/Fleet. Only care about a nice, safe position on a transit board $$$ and pension I'm surprised none of them recommend ordering buses from Orion or Flxible lol
  12. MODS feel free to move if not the correct sub-forum Interesting one of the characters is a "CTS" rail operator lol At time stamp 1:19 looks like Red line Sheridan station ?? And looks like they used 2600 series for the series !! Synopsis: The Red Line's plot involves a white cop in Chicago who mistakenly shoots and kills a black doctor. It follows three different families with connections to the case, and the story is told from each perspective. 8 episode limited series on CBS
  13. The question is, How were you able to drive through CTA property and not get into any trouble or noticed ?? Did your P71 Vic had anything to do with it ?? lol Dave
  14. Bout time My dad said Jeff park station really hasn't changed at all since he moved to Chicago in 1980 Dave
