In the early 1990s, the Brown Line had all of its rolling stock replaced with new 3200-series equipment. Here, car 3434 brings up the rear of an inbound Brown Line train near Hill Street, looking southwest. April 18, 2003. The CTA had begun to remove the unused outer tracks around Church Curve, replacing them with fiberglass catwalks. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

Car 3210 brings up the rear of an inbound Brown Line train near Halsted, looking east on April 18, 2003. The spaces between the tracks were formally for dual island platforms, now removed, for the former Halsted station. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

On September 11, 2004, a four-car train of pantograph-equipped Yellow Line cars, trailed by car 3441, pass Crawford Avenue while performing a test of the new third rail traction power. The pantographs, once necessary to operate on the Yellow Line beyond Skokie Shops, are locked down and now superfluous. The test was successful and the third rail officially entered revenue service two days later. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

The North Avenue bridge, a replacement structure installed in the 1990s, is seen from street-level on May 30, 2004 as a southbound Brown Line train of 3200-series cars passes overhead on its way to the Loop. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

In a striking night view, a northbound Brown Line train enters Chicago station, whose passengers wait bathed in the yellow glow of the sodium vapor platform lights. The Sears Tower looms over the Merchandise Mart in the background, both lit up like beacons in the evening sky. (Photo by Tony Coppoletta)

Cars 3421-22 are wrapped for Barney's Co-Op, the "affordable" clothing store carrying casual apparel and accessories marketed toward younger customers operated by the famous luxury department store, stops at Diversey on May 1, 2005. It is interesting that the address of the store on the letterboard was spaced such that it cuts off mid-word on the right end. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

Car 3421, wrapped for LaSalle Bank, is trailing a Brown Line train at Diversey on May 25, 2005. Although LaSalle Bank has had its name on a couple ad wrap cars up to this point (as they sponsor the Chicago Marathon, who has wrapped a few cars a year since 2004), this is the first wrap that was specifically advertising the bank itself.

cta3278-Ted.jpg (193k)
In Spring 2005, United Airlines wrapped six cars for their budget airline, Ted. The cars carry a Chicago baseball theme, with each car in the pair representing one of the two local clubs. The Cubs car has a blue background and a Cubs logo on the far left of the car under the side window, following by the words "Ted" a Northsider." in large orange type. Under the right-most side window on two lines are the words "Low fares from O'Hare." in orange. The White Sox car in each pair is the same, except that the background is orange, the lettering is blue, the Sox logo is used, and the lettering says "Ted is a Southsider." and "Low fares from Midway." The Orange Line cars trail a train at Clark/Lake on May 9, 2005. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

Four cars of a six-car Brown Line train -- cars 3341-3342 and 3347-3348 -- are wrapped for Target stores at Western station on March 18, 2004. Target is one of the CTA's more frequent ad wrap customers. (Photo by Matthew Isoda)

Cars 3247-3248, stopped at Western on December 12, 2003, are advertising American Express' "Blue Cash" card, an Am Ex credit card that has cash-back rewards. Reinforcing the brand, the wrap has a multi-toned blue design. (Photo by Matthew Isoda)
