This a picture of 1892-1992 (2007-2008) in January of 1999. The cars are stored at the Skokie Shops. The cars were given an 1890s paint scheme for the celebration of the "L"'s 100th anniversary in 1992. These cars are supposed to go to the Pullman neighborhood on Chicago's South Side for inclusion in a planned Pullman museum. (Photos by Eric Zabelny)
