  1. ATS O'Hare

    The latest news release states that the ATS will shutdown completely beginning January 9th for testing. Completion is scheduled for next fall. Not sure if that means the system will be completely closed for the entirety of that time. Either way, things will be painful given the problems they have had thus far with meeting demand and keeping schedules.
  2. ATS O'Hare

    A picture of one of the new ATS cars is on the website of one of the construction managers for the upgrade (R.M Chin & Associates). You can find it here: https://www.rmchin.com/portfolios/ohare-airport-transit-system/

    Manufactured by Bombardier - INNOVIA APM 256 cars https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/contracts/125.pdf
  4. Wilson Red/Purple Line Station Rebuild

    So what happened to the new platform and station house opening on Sept. 11? Do not see any alerts on the CTA website.
  5. Washington/Wabash Station Build

    It seems the completion date for the washington/wabash station has been pushed back again. The website now says September 2017. Just a month ago they were talking about the end of June. Sounds like they keep falling behind schedule.

  11. More New Flyers

    As an Aside to this discussion. I just saw (noon 12/4) a nova articulate bus headed west on Madison right by Western. It did not seem to have the CTA paint scheme. Maybe headed to Chicago for a demostration???? not sure.

    the reason why they are using wood instead of concrete is explained here: http://www.ctastationwatch.com/main-line/587
  13. 5000-series - Updates

    Im guessing they swapped cars with the green line, since the green line had a few sets of 2400's in service today... more than i have seen in a couple of weeks
  14. 5000-series - Updates

    I have not seen any 2600's on the pink line in over a week. Is the line serviced only by 5000's now? Can we expect 5000's on the green line soon?
  15. Morgan Green/Pink station....

    Yes, They have been working 12 hour days, seven days a week for the last 2 weeks. Rahm wanted it finished sometime this week, so they will have a soft opening Friday. Obviously, they will have a significant amount of punch list items to address after the opening.
