What to Do With Surplus Artics

It's possible the 49 may use an artic or two for Lane Tech school trips.

The 62 artic trip is operated by K and serves Curie High School. 

The 126 could possibly use artics serving Whitney Young High School. 

From what I've been seeing every school day on the 49, the artics seen are for both Lane Tech and Clemente. They all head north to Berwyn terminal and then deadhead down Foster and LSD to do whatever runs needed on NP's LSD routes keeping in line with everyone else's observations that many of the school tripper artic runs are interlined with LSD routes or local routes that regular see artics.

They interline with 22

I suppose NP could theoretically put artics on the 22 and 36 and move those 40' buses to FG.  It's not going to happen.  I suppose we will know in a week or so what will actually happen. 

They are on 22, but at the moment aren't.  @maths22 tracker indicates that 14 were on 22 at 8 a.m. today.

The pattern on 22 is kind of odd. AM pullouts are artics that pull in after the rush, replaced by 40 footers off 143-146-148. After PM rush these all pull in and are replaced by artics off 147 that are then out all evening.so there are three separate sets of equipment, am rush, midday and pm rush, and evening.

Sounds a bit old cause now those PM rush artics come on at 3-4 which were formerly used for 135/136 although some 147s still interline as well
