I had something similar happen to me when I had my first run on the hyde park express as a rookie, I had it twice during the week but one day would be PM and the other would be AM. Coming back southbound I got off at 47th thinking it was the PM route not realizing it was 9 am. I luckily didn't make the turn going westbound and got back on the Drive to continue south via the regular AM route, I apologized to my passengers that got confused by the ordeal. I was so use to doing the PM portion of the route my mind had a freeze moment. I had another incident while doing the 53A this past weekend at the 31st and Komensky terminal. As I tried leaving the terminal two motorists decided that it would be a smart idea to block both lanes of 31st street going eastbound to jump start a battery in a broken down pick up truck. I couldn't get through going eastbound so I had to go westbound towards kostner and when I tell ya the traffic was so backed up because of that i finally reached Pulaski nearly 12 minutes behind only to find out that those two motorists finally moved there trucks across the street from the terminal entrance and to make matters worse my next trip going south after that was halted by a 5 car pile up at the Stevenson expressway interchange. I've never seen that bridge that packed like that ever. Just traffic all over the place with no clear direction of where to go on the entrance/exit ramps. After I finally got through all of that I found myself 15 minutes behind.

I forgot to mention but if anyone ever rides #7900 and #7901 you might notice a few things different about them compared to the rest of the fleet. #7901 has a caution bus is turning announcement that plays when the bus is in the process of making a turn and I'd assume #7900 does as well. So be on the lookout for those two.

I rode train 5130 on the Green Line today. There was an issue where the inside signs were stuck at 6:21 PM when I entered around 6:23 PM. At 6:27, the signs unfroze and then worked properly. At 6:30 PM, they stopped working and they were stuck and I exited at around 6:33 PM. I wonder what's up with this car, 5129 did not have the issues along with the rest of the train (5085/6 5095/6). Anyone know what's causing this issue? Also notice on the third photo, the sign on that side is not working both on the inside and outside, but the right side does work. Something's up with the signs on this train car.
