Hello all,

I was just on a Red Line train that stalled at a crossover, and that jogged my memory: isn’t there some video somewhere of a guy moving a stalled CTA train with along pole? I believe it was a Green Line train somewhere on the loop.

Forgive me if I’m breaking any rules, I’ve never posted in the Chicago sub forum as I’m only visiting the area.

(Love your city btw!)

Check the topic "Trapped in a Gap" from several months ago. There is indeed a video showing the rescue of a Pink Line train.
