In the fall of 1979, a westbound Douglas-Milwaukee "B" train failed to stop at the Cicero crossing before the gates came down. Car 2342 hit a steel truck and derailed, stopping just short of the ticket agents booth! Flange marks can still be seen today at that location. The photo was taken in the 54th Avenue Yard on October 6, 1979. The car could not be run on the tracks to Skokie, so it was cut in half and shipped by truck instead. As of August 1999, 2341 was still sitting in the Skokie Shops yard. (Photo by Peter Vesic)

Car 2260 picks up the rear of a Blue Line train at UIC-Halsted in March 1999. All "L" trains carry double red marker lights in the rear; if it weren't for the interstate highway signs in the background, without the destination sign, it would be difficult if not impossible to determine the destination of this train...
