Detailed 3200s Rehab Progress

Recommended Posts

as of 8/1/18 3351 and 3448 are assigned brown instead of long term hold. Mates 3352 and 3447 still LTH. Are 3351 and 3448 running as a mixed pair?

Sounds like it. I got pictures of #3351-52 on here. Just look up rodeo pictures from 2013 I believe. #3352 has a lot of damage. I'm surprised #3351 is running. What happened to #3447-48? Now you got me interested. I gotta see this. Whatever happened to #3457-58? Could #3457 be paired to something else like #3435 or #3436? I can't see it running in rehab condition unless #3458 gets digital signs.

I added a whole bunch of rehabbed 3200s to the list. They should only have 16 cars to rehab 17 if you count 3457. Didn't see #3457-58 or #3352-#3447. They got to be at Skokie shops. I don't see any non rehabbed 3200s in service anymore. 16 cars can fit at Skokie shops. I guess the timing is right for the great 3200 division to happen. All the lines should be equal now.

Just passed a train leaving Skokie of rehabbed cars, but the last 2 cars were 3447-3448.

Hmm so what happened to #3352?? That may have been the last set of rehabbed 3200s unless the other 8 are unaccounted for?

Just to report,

 

Yesterday, While on the blue towards O'hare I noticed 2 sets of 3200's at the Blue line Rosemont yard. Sadly I caught them last minute and didn't catch the complete fleet #'s

But they were 100% 3200's !!!

So I guess starting Monday morning we need to look for some 3200s AND 5000s on the Blue Line.

Definitely 5000s on the Racine trips on the posted Sept. 16 schedule, but @garmon757 said there would have to be training on the 3200s. I don't know why the 5000s would be different; maybe 54/Cermak operators are already qualified, but what about the switchmen and such on the Blue Line?

Just curious why would switchmen need to be involved? The way the 5000s communicate with the system compared to others?

You'll have to ask @garmon757  about that, as he originally brought up switchmen. My view is that the 3200s are similar enough to the 2600s so why the big deal, but he works there and I don't.

Update:

Saw at least 4 more pairs of 3200's at Rosemont today !!

One set was wrapped with some pink AD

 

Also I didn't see ANY 5000's at Rosemont

The 5000s are Pink line deadheads from 54Th to Racine.  Runs 320, 321, 322
