It does appear there are four Highliners now sitting in Union.

There's still a handful of the old Highliners near Randolph Street. A few are on an non-powered siding adjacent to Van Buren Station and there are six sitting parked in a siding adjacent to Track 13 in Millennium Station (the Upper Level NICTD Platforms). I don't know how long they'll be sticking around there. Does anyone know if these are going to be saved or heading to the scrapper's torch?

There is a string of HiLiners sitting at Western Ave. yard. There is also a fairly long string of them sitting on a siding along the Milwaukee West line by the west end of Bensenville Yard. All are graffiti covered.
