Thanks for this. The forum was due for a Metra car roster, since CTA and Pace rosters have existed for a while.

At one time, didn't  Metra or RTA subsidize a few of the South Shore cars?  I seem to remember a RTA logo on some single level cars. I know the bilevels were NICTD purchases.

Yes. Out of the Nippon-Sharyo cars from the 1980s, 31-38 are Metra owned.

It does appear WSMTD is gone. Explains BNSF cars on Orland trains and original Metra cars on BNSF if now straight Metra owned.

I know that originally, the Burlington required much stronger frames & anti-telescoping structures on its commuter coaches than the rest of the local RRs running bilevel commuter trains.  So has that requirement changed or are current Metra coaches, other than the really old ex-C&NW painted ones the only ones that don't meet those specs?

That was discussed in connection with the aborted Metra procurement, which said only that the cars must meet FRA requirements. Also, obviously 6000s and 8500s are running on the BNSF.
