While cars 5011-12 undergo midday testing on Track 1, a Red Line train of 2600-series cars led by car 2707 pulls up next to the prototype cars at Bryn Mawr station on October 20, 2009, providing a nice comparison between the workhorse of CTA's rapid transit fleet and their newest modest railcar.

Although most of the "L" would stay running through and after the blizzard of February 2011, the snow would eventually accumulate to approximately 21 inches and due to blowing snow and substantial drifts that accumulated on the ground-level right-of-way, Yellow Line service was annulled on February 2. Service resumed on February 4, 2011, the same day car 2896 can be seen leading a 2-car train crossing Niles Center Road. Note the snow build-up on the front chains, coupler, and anti-climber.

As the driving snow blows across the right-of-way, an 8-car Red Line train of 2600-series cars makes its way around the curve east of Sheridan station on its way to Howard on the morning of February 2, 2011 The streets were largely impassible and deserted, but nearly all of the "L" system continued operating.

A four-car Pink Line train of 2600-series cars passes through the Tower 18 interlocking on its way into the Loop in this view looking west on November 30, 2011. A group of CTA signal maintainers is on the tracks next to the train. The interlocking tower was relatively new, brought into service only about a year and a half before. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

The 2013 CTA Holiday Train stands ready to depart Midway for a through-trip on the Orange and Brown lines on Thursday, December 5 from the side track, while a regular service train of 2400-series cars loads passengers on the main island platform. (Photo by Corey Ellison)

A 54th-bound Pink Line train slowly passes through as work on the new Morgan station continues in this view looking east on February 7, 2012. The glass wall panels and polycarbonate canopy roofing have been installed, and wiring is being pulled through the raceway along the underside of the platform canopies. Work on both core systems and finishes continues. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

Car 2636 is on the rear of an Orange Line train awaiting its departure time from Midway on July 2, 2014. A number of 2400-series cars have been assigned to Midway Yard since late 2012, both to support Orange Line trips added at that time as well as some Brown Line trips that are dispatched from Midway Yard. But as the 2400s were retired and more 5000-series cars were delivered, the 2600-series cars were displaced from the Red Line and reassigned to backfill the retired 2400s at Midway.

The state of Leland Crossover is seen looking south as it existed on October 6, 2012 -- the right-hand crossover from Track 2 to Track 1 remains, but the left-hand crossover from Track 1 to Track 2 which used to be immediately beyond it has been removed. A northbound Red Line train passes led by car 2730, but note which track it's on -- its presence on the outer express track, Track 4, instead of the usual Track 3 suggests that a reroute is in effect, probably for maintenance or construction elsewhere in the vicinity.

The Holiday Train sits next to car 2880 on the end of an Orange Line road train at Midway station on December 3, 2015. Although their commonalities are somewhat disguised by the graphically-intense wrap and bright lights festooned on the exterior, the Holiday Train cars and car 2880 are identical, both being 2600-series cars. Although long associated with the 3200-series cars, which opened the line in 1993 and were exclusively outfitted the line for many years, the Orange Line began to also run 2600s in 2012 when additional cars were needed to operate additional service that was added.
