Car 2577 stops at Library/State-Van Buren during the morning rush hour on January 7, 2002. The newly-applied American flag, along with the red, white, and blue belt rail and car ends, give this 2400 an especially patriotic feel. The application of "Old Glory" is a systemwide program and the decal has begun appearing in late December 2001. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

2001 Historic Station Tour charter train car 2479 has boarded its passengers and it ready to head to its next destination on November 4, 2001. The platforms at the closed Racine station, though looking a bit rough with peeling paint and little cleaning, are actually in fairly good shape. There is a small bit rust-jacking on some of the canopy columns, however. (Photo by Graham Garfield)
