This is the retirement list for the #7300's as they were being phased out. #7380 had already been retired in 2003.

Back in the day, I saw 7380 in the Perry Yard, indicating an underfloor engine fire. It also had a "Quizno's, Toasty" ad on it. Toasted.

That was the bus that blew a piston that burned a woman's leg in the back of the bus.

I have a newspaper article of a #7300 that burned up at 47th/Dan Ryan. It shows it pretty much demolished. I can't seem to find out what bus number it was though. When I find the article i'll post it.

Found a whole bunch of pictures on the #7300 fire at 47th/Dan Ryan Flickr under artistmac's profile. If you check his photostream he basically has the accident start to finish.

From that stream, 7327. The flames up the articulation joint are sure impressive.
