Wrapped in a graphic to look like rumpled tin foil, not unlike on of their wrapped signature burritos, car 3438 is advertising the Chipotle Mexican food chain while bringing up the rear of a northbound Brown Line train at Merchandise Mart on June 30, 2006. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

Still wrapped to commemorate the White Sox's 2005 World Series win, after a tour around the rail system the cars have returned back to their regular assignment on the Brown Line, seen at the rear of a southbound train at dusk leaving Belmont on July 23, 2006. Ironically, this puts the cars in daily service through neighborhoods that are majority Cubs fans... (Photo by Graham Garfield)

While being tested on various rail lines, the prototype 5000-series railcars made their way to the Brown Line. The train is laid over at Kimball Terminal on November 9, 2009, sitting on the side track to stay out of the way of revenue trains. Car 5011, at the south end of the train, provides an interesting contrast to car 3317, a car of the previous series. The 5000s and 3200s share a near-identical exterior car body.

The three pockets at Kimball Terminal -- from right to left, tracks 1, 2, and 3 (side) -- provides panoramic view of the two latest series of CTA railcars on November 9, 2009. Tracks 1 and 2 having trains of 3200-series cars in Brown Line service, waiting for their next trips. Track 3 houses a train of prototype 5000-series railcars. Car 5008 is at the front end of the 5000, while car 3342 is nearest the camera on the center track. While the two series' car exteriors are virtually the same, this lineup allows for an examination of the subtle differences. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

Car 5008, one of eight cars in this train of prototype 5000-series cars, provides a contrast to car 3421, a car of its predecessor series, at Kimball on November 9, 2009.
