If one accepts the logic that the Blue Line will be the last to get 7000s, and thus is getting 3200s, that's not a relevant consideration. The 100 rehabs will probably stay on the Blue Line and already have Blue Line roll signs.

The issue is the maybe 160 cars that do not have Orange/Brown signs.

Aren't  there some 250 plus roll signs that used to be on the 3200s around?  I bet those have Orange and Brown Line signs!

Either that, or some 900 roll signs from Red between when they were ordered for Ashland-63 trips when the Dan Ryan was closed until they became unnecessary when the Red Line became all 5000s. But I agree with you re signs from 3200s before rehab.

is it just me or are the 2600s much louder when it’s warmer outside than when it’s cold. They  make a really loud noise in the summer, is that just the air conditioning running that’s making them louder?

Yes it is the air conditioner.   The noise you hear is the condenser motor.

3200 as a lead car

I caught it the other day.  The last Budd subway car ever built.  I'm hoping they restore it in its original livery and make 3199-3200 part of a Heritage Train.  CTA needs to keep this pair cause they're historical.
