Car 4284 (right) stands at the Illinois Railway Museum with car 4436 in the summer of 1976. The cars were shipped on their own wheels to IRM after their retirement from the CTA, then loaded on flat cars to go east to the Connecticut Electric Railway Association (aka Warehouse Point, see above). The cars did run at IRM on their own power. (Photo by Peter Vesic)
