Looks like 1703 has made its way up to the North Side according to NETransit.

That's the third 17XX so far this year and there are now two on the North Side at the same time. Wow

1531 was the control cab on 302 this morning -- a 5-car flat set including another MBB.

Hearing through the grapevine that the 1600s are cycling through PTC work which is being done on the South Side, tying up somewhere between 3-6 cars. Hence the need to move other control cars north. Might we start seeing 1600s as actual control cars south?
