This close-up of the front end of 2577, as it sits at Howard prepared to go to Linden, gives a good view of the aesthetic details of the 2400-series cars designed by Sundberg-Ferar as well as subsequent changes, like the grafting of safety springs onto the edges of the end cap.

A six-car Green Line train of work motor-capable 2400s -- identifiable by the reflective candy-stripped front panels -- pulls into Clark/Lake on its way to Harlem on July 2, 2003. Note the pigeon flying on the left: the modern Clark/Lake station, with its long, flat beams, is somewhat of a pigeon haven, to the annoyance of passengers and rail janitors alike. (Photo by Leon Kay)
