As two Evanston trains of 4000-series cars meet at Davis station in downtown Evanston, car 4293 leads the northbound train (at left) on September 15, 1969. The trolley poles seen here would be needed for another four years before third rail was installed. (Collection of Joe Testagrose)

Car 4346 (foreground), 4376 (background, left), and several other 4000s sit in Skokie Yard on August 20, 1970. In the not-too-distant future, the cars would be out of regular service, through many would go on to a second life as work cars. (Photo by Joe Testagrose)

To provide more effective rail grinding operations (and the ability to do it at speed), car 4358 was converted into work car S-1 in 1972 and named "Shhhicago". The car is still undergoing conversion, though already wearing its distinctive red paint scheme at Skokie Shops on April 1, 1972. The car would not enter service until June. A 6000-series car is behind 4358, while a 2000-series car is on the track to the right. (Collection of Joe Testagrose)

The CTA's training train is on the Ravenswood here, passing Montrose station on August 20, 1970. Note the two uniformed men in the motorcab; presumably, one is the line instructor or supervisor and the other is the trainee. (Photo by Joe Testagrose)
