It is common operating procedure that if a run gets sufficiently behind schedule, the Control Center will authorize the operator of that train to skip several stops to get the train back on schedule. While "breezing" scheduled station stops, the train's destination signs are turned to the generic "Express" reading, with flashing white-white markers, as this Blue Line train at UIC-Halsted with 3110 at the rear has on March 13, 2002.

These trains use regular equipment and operate on in-service lines, but are not in the normal timetable and carry no revenue passengers. Here, car 2754 leads an instruction train approaching Armitage station on February 8, 2002. (Photo by Graham Garfield)
