On an Independence Day fantrip, car 2241 and a train of 2200-series cars allow fans to take a "flyby" photo across from the Laramie station in 1971. (Photo by Joe Testagrose)

On the same fantrip, 2241 leads a chartered train (note the "Not in Service" roll sign and the white-white marker reading) at Washington/State on July 4, 1971. Note the sign on the tunnel wall indicating the location of the train stop; berthing locations used to be a bit more staggered down the platform than they are today. (Photo by Joe Testagrose)

A four-car midday northbound (somewhat dusty looking) Lake-Dan Ryan "B" train is trailed by car 2246 as it pulls into Madison/Wabash on April 11, 1977. Note the sticker over the motorman's window on the #1 end of the car: 2201-2350 received "Air Conditioned" decals beginning in 1973, at a time when most of the fleet was still without A/C. A few were on windows: ice blue letters on transparent background. Most, like the one pictured here, were above the cab window: pine (dark) green letters on a lime green background.

Car 2249 leads a Lake-Dan Ryan All-Stop at State & Lake on July 4, 1971. Note the rather plain white metal sign below the agent's window that simply reads "State & Lake": these signs, which predated the CTA's symbol signs, were common on Loop station platforms. (Photo by Joe Testagrose)

A 2200-series Congress-Milwaukee "A" train, led by car 2250, stops at U of I-Halsted on August 8, 1970. Note the 1950s station name sign on the platform partition and the exit signs on the Interstate in the background: the left sign for the Kennedy calls it I-94. At this time, the Eisenhower is I-90, not I-290. (I-90 would later follow I-94 north.) (Photo by Joe Testagrose)
