Doesnt it have the cleanest looking cow catcher/scoop. There is one #3200 that is just as clean. I think #3223. I rode #3203-04 the other day. Its sounding really nice with its high pitch whine from the motors. Nice when stuff is new. 

Btw, I took #3441-42 off my fully rehabbed list as its not fully rehabbed. #3423-24 is not rehabbed either, its still wrapped. I also took off the digital run number signs on #3293-94 as it doesnt have them. (A little of the behind the scenes play by play)

Didnt #3451-52 get a rehab? I seem to be missing it.

It's fully rehabbed #3451-52. I saw 3223-24 but shockingly it's not rehabbed at all.

And #3369-70 from yesterday

One thing I kind of find interesting is that the end caps have either not been cleaned or repainted. There is still rail grime on the ends of both cars. Both cars have digital run boxes, so it would appear they are full rehabs but I have yet to see either car in service.

Hey Garmon you sure #3221-22 is rehabbed it's parked next to #3369-70 and it doesn't appear to be rehabbed? (Look at my pic one post up)

Thanks! I know it's 322X but they might have been rehabbed already!

Not quite. Although it (#3451-52) has new seat upholstery, it remains LED destination sign only rehabbed (it still has the old fluorescent interior lighting). I was in #3451 on my way home from work.

I believe I was on #3451-3452 after it got it's update. Can someone take a picture of this new upholstery? Because I haven't seen anything new or unusual in that department, aside from the blue plastic seats on #8200-8249.

The rehashed 3200's look great I still have yet to ride 1 since then but I'll try to get a ride in sooner than later. But this is also random but as a life long cta fan I love to see the 2600's coupled with the 3200's they just look so good together. Especially when you have 4 of the same belly cars and the other 4 are the leading and trailing cars I love to see that combination. And it's rare now days to see that the Orange Line and ocsssional Brownage trip is the only place where you'll see that. Once the 2600's  are all retired we probably  will never see that again since the 7000s won't be able to couple with the 5000s 😌 lol.
