they way CTA and IDOT are going with the congress branch blue line will most likely become all 3200’s unless rebuild starts some time in the coming months 

The 7000s are nice But I know Im in no hurry to see those cars on the Blue  Im satisfied with the 3200s being assigned! The 2600s need to go  Theyre done!

one thing i like is the black around the windows it fits in really great

Those are a nice touch and help give the cars a more modern appearance. I'm very curious how the interior turned out. Each subsequent rendering that was released seemed to inch more and more towards the same old aesthetics.

if anything it will be half 3200’s half 5000’s or maybe even 7000’s we will see how testing goes on the blue 

Probably they couldnt even run 5000s on the forest pk branch. They will most likely remain 3200s and 2600s until they have to have 5000s and then they might have to split the blue line at racine to keep a couple 2600s around if the argument of 5000s on forest pk branch has any merit. 5000s could then run the blue but only from racine nb.

Until we see the interior for ourselves, I think the most visible change aside from the seats will be the security displays that show footage from the CCTV cameras installed in the cars. I think they’re also supposed to display other things, but I don’t remember. The cars will also come with passenger counters, though those will be much less visually intrusive.

      It seems the CTA is getting ready to announce an RFP (request for proposals) for a new series of rail cars. I hear that, with options, the order could be for more than 800 cars.

      Does anyone have more details?

      I was trying to see if there were any remants of old driver paddles, when I stumbled onto an old "manual" for the first-gen 7000 Man Articulated series. Take a look. There are a bunch of photos (interior and exterior).
      Edit: Including the classic Flyers in the thread too
