  1. From my records 900s all gone: 901, 902, 908 withdrawn 12/13; 906 w 1/14; 900, 904, 904, 909 w 7/14; 905 w10/14; 907 w11/14 801 w9/14; 809 w 3/15; 802 w10/15; 805 has not been in service since 12/16; 805 has not been in service since 3/17; 800, 803, 804, 806, 807, 808 are all still regularly used
  2. From photo on Fox 32 news it is 1805.
  3. The 800-809 hybrids were delivered in 2006. 802 and 803 went to Chicago 806 and 807 to Archer, the rest went to Kedzie. They entered service in early 2007 (I caught 6 of them in February 2007). They were not at A and C for long, 802, 803, 806, 807 moved to Kedzie between 10/07 and the end of 2007. The 900-909 hybrids were delivered in 2007 entering service in September - all at K.
  4. The 1600s were new to FG moving to Limits in 1991, then Kedzie in 1994 before moving back to Forest Glen in 1997
  5. 215 and 216 were Amtrak 258 and 375. 217 which I thought was purchased for spares only, was VRE V32 and originally Amtrak 364.
  6. and 1930 on 22. 1933 is however on 20
  7. No it is just the Ramdolph/Michigan time that is wrong. Chestnut/Lake Shore to Halsted/Taylor is 31 minutes in current timetable and 28 minutes in the new one for a similar timed journey (7:03 or 7:04). I am not sure they can save 3 minutes in that stretch! Looks like the westbound timing point labelled Randolph/Michigan in the new timetable is either Jackson/Clinton or Clinton Blue Line!
  8. There is something wrong with the timings on the 157 timetable. Buses are given 4 minutes to get from Randolph/Michigan to Taylor/Halsted and 16 minutes in the other direction! 4 minutes is totally impossible (Google Maps makes it 12 minutes without traffic).
  9. The only ones shown as going to Union Station are ones that head back south on the 28. I assume the Adams/Canal termination continue on Adams and then return to 103rd via 90/94.
  10. Another long time missing bus 4078 (since early last July) reappeared on 3/6/2017
  11. Some of the 4000s that have been out of service for a long time seem to be re-appearing 4137 which has been out of service since before February 2016 has reappeared in service since 2/6/2017. 4185 out since February 2016 has been in service since 2/1/2017
  12. Did one of my periodic checks of webwatch during Thursday pm rush. The following Orion's were out:- NW 6008-209, 6031-290, 6037-250, 6046-270, 6079-240, 6091-223, 6101-223, 6141-241, 6143-208 then 604, 6145-270 and 6153-226 (11) W 6041-313, 6044-305, 6048-303, 6057-307, 6058-301, 6060-318, 6062-313, 6067-307, 6069-307, 6070-318, 6099-322, 6103-302, 6116-315, 6122-301, 6123-331, 6125-308, 6130-301, 6132-331, 6156-332, 6157-301, 6159-322 and 6161-309 (22) SW none
  13. According to Andre's list of 2015 departures, 510, 516, 523, 527 and 540 went to RVM. 516 was one of the two Ventra buses and may be the one that did not enter service.
  14. 6157 and 6159 are already at West. On 301 and 322 Thursday afternoon. 6156 was on 322 and 6161 on 309 at that time. There were no Orion's on SW routes Thursday afternoon.
  15. 6539 and 6728 according to Andre's list of 2016 disposals
