Call me dumb, but I can't find the post on the new CSS book from the Walthers catalog. It's a good book, I just got my copy today. It's all pre-1980 stuff, but nothing earth shaking. Mostly B&W roster shots of everything they ran at CSS. The one revealing photo is page 15 bottom -a Pullman-Standard MU coupled to a orange-painted CTA 4000 coach. I know nothing about this, but recall in the mid-80's seeing some CTA 4000's parked in the NW corner of shops.

edit: page 19 also has a CTA car, 4450, in CTA white/green parked at MC Shops.
