The 2400's can't go soon enough. They have bum doors and bum a/c. Makes for a miserable ride in the AM. I sincerely wish they would've tossed the 2400's and kept the 2200's.

There really was a street railway carhouse somewhere in Chicago stuffed with historic CTA cars intended for preservation decades ago. IRM got almost everything, except Fox River Trolley Museum got a post office street car, and the Chicago History Museum got the first elevated car. The only things CTA has kept are a pair of 1920s elevated cars and maybe a bus or two.
