On the Green Line yesterday, 5051's LED signs were not working at all. It's twin 5052 had it's outside and indoor LED's working, but 5051 was just completely blank. The lights and doors worked, but neither of the interior displays were on nor the side signs. The rest of the train (5092 5091 5147 5148) had working signs too. 5051 and 5052 have been going in and out of the Harlem repair yard during the last few weeks and those are the Zebra patterned cars too which are a white wrap with black stripes presenting Floating Museum.

At one time,  there was nothing wrong with this.  But CTA changed the markers so it would be less confusing.  Now Green Line trains have green markers for Harlem and Ashland/63 and white and Green for Cottage Grove. 

It looks like this should be a Blue Line train to O'Hare.  It looks like this train is sitting at  Forest Park.   Apparently the 3200s weren't reprogrammed.

Bus driver was shot with a paintball gun overnight driver was driving 1276

Yeah things have been getting out of hand with these freelance paintball attackers and with this happening on a late evening at 80th and cottage grove is disturbing since our relief point is at 79th, so much stuff happens at 79th already and with this happening randomly out if the blue is troubling. Now granted this was late at night but my fear is 10/30-10-31 is going to be hell for all operators around the system with so many people especially teens and young adults doing things they should while using public transportation. Thankfully the operator was ok last night but it's still ridiculous having to deal with that.

Well the same thing happened again on 79th and Michigan a bus operators bus was just lit up with paintballs about an hour ago. Something has to give here before someone seriously gets hurt.

Usually theres a heavy police presence out south. I was wondering what happened to all the cops cause I barely see them up north. I found out one Sunday night. I was working on an uber bonus and got caught up working in Roseland around Michigan and 112th through the ryan split. There were cops it seemed like every 2 blocks hanging out all over. It actually unnerved me seeing all the police. They were sitting around some were on calls. I never really saw that before. I got to north side and noticed people driving over 100 on the kennedy. It just seemed that night like there was so much lawlessness. I was happy to get home.

CPD picks and chooses when they want to be seen, I hardly see them in the hot spots along 79th street, Cottage Grove and even King Drive believe it or not.

Yeah 79th and cottage usually has people hanging on the corner. I dont know I dont like tight intersections like that.  But it appears the attacks are coming from a car. With all the cameras we got in the city, It should be easy to catch these guys. Why doesnt cta start a policy at 77th to tell riders to exit from the rear doors only. It would save the operators from opening the doors up front too much. Heard it happened while riders were exiting. I'd be driving defensively.

Should be a blast on halloween. I'm debating if I should work. At least I have a choice, but the union should be stepping up to help you guys. You guys pay bank for union dues. I recently found out how much. Ouch!! You need to get what your paying for.

This, especially 79th & Cottage Grove. I walk a lot of places and for some distances, but I always make sure to be on a bus going through that intersection

I remember one time I was standing there at 79th and Cottage waiting to make a relief going northbound and this distraught women came out of no where with a long butcher knife looking for someone and almost every guy standing on the corner and adjacent to the block down the street just vanished out of thin air. It made me chuckle until she came towards the bus stop but luckily my relief came a few minutes later and the passengers that were there waiting with me were happy to get the hell out of there. 79th and cottage is the step cousin to Madison and Pulaski, I have no idea how they're so similar to eachother when it comes to crime,junkies and just weird experiences.

That looks like the west end of LaSalle/Congress.
