The Illinois Railway Museum in Union, IL was the victim of vandalization on five ex-CTA "L" cars in mid-January 2001. This was the third act of vandalism in a rash of recent hits against IRM. On January 11th, vandals snuck onto IRM property and extensively spray painted and vandalized five CTA rapid transit cars: 5-50 series cars 22, 30, and 41 and 2000-series cars 2153-2154. Car 2153 is seen on April 1, 2001. (Photo by Mike Farrell)

2000-series car 2154, one of five cars vandalized at the Illinois Railway Museum in January 2001, is seen one day after most of the graffiti was washed off, one April 1, 2001. Unfortunately, some of the graffiti remained and its attempted removal severely damaged the car's paint scheme. (Photo by Mike Farrell)

A busy scene at Belmont station: car 2123 leads a southbound Howard-Jackson Park train on the North-South Route, while two 2600-series cars work the Ravenswood Line, stopping on the outside tracks. The view looks north from the overhead transfer bridge in July 1988. (Photo by James Raymond)

Car 1892, painted to resemble a South Side Rapid Transit wood car circa 1892 for the occasion of the "L"'s 100th anniversary, was occasionally used in revenue service when extra cars were needed. Here, it is leading a six-car train of 2000s nearing Fullerton on a northbound Evanston Express run in August 1992. (Photo by James Raymond)

Laid up in Linden Yard between runs in July 1988, car 2179's destination sign indicates it was last used on an Evanston Express train. The 2000s made up about a third of the Evanston Line's stock at this time, so it was common to see them in express service; the remainder of the 2000s were assigned to the North-South Route.

A train of North-South 2000s is completing a trip around the turnaround loop in Howard Yard to begin another southbound journey while another set of 2000s is parked on a storage track at right in July 1988. The yard is under reconstruction: the tracks straight ahead that lead to the Evanston Line will soon be superseded by the new flyover being constructed at left. (Photo by James Raymond)
