Cars 4271-4272 have just recently undergone an overhaul, as evidenced by its gleaming exterior finish. They would be the last 4000-series cars to be overhauled, contributing to their being chosen to become the CTA's preserved Historic Cars.

As railfans look around and take pictures, car 4271 stands really to lead the CTA's Historic Train back south on the Evanston Line as it stands at Linden on July 6, 1975. It's trolley poles are no longer necessary here, as the Evanston Line had been using third rail for nearly two years now. Note the 6000-series car in the yard.
