A CTA Training Train, led by car 4391, pulls out from the Kedzie station on the Ravenswood branch on August 20, 1970. The design of this two-story station was unique, though it was similar to Linden in some respects. The CTA placed automated crossing gates across the sidewalks at Ravenswood grade-crossings to protect pedestrians. (Photo by Joe Testagrose)

Car 4401 leads a CTA Training Train (evidenced by the front destination sign) passes through Western on August 21, 1970. Passing in the opposite direction is a Ravenswood "A" train of various PCC cars, including a 6000 (center) and 1-50 series car 12 (right). The Western center track is also evident.

Until the Lake Line was through-routed with the Dan Ryan Line in 1969, it terminated around the Loop. Starting in 1913, it operated counterclockwise on the Inner Loop. Here, car 4407 leads a Lake "B" train through the Tower 18 interlocking, across the Outer Loop track (by this point used primarily by Ravenswood trains) toward Randolph/Wells in January 1964.

A Ravenswood "A" train led by car 4410 nears Sedgwick station, looking east on October 21, 1973. A CERA fantrip is the reason for the 4000s presence here, as the 4000s were removed from Ravenswood service in 1971 when sufficient numbers of 6000s and 1-50s were assigned. Use of the outside tracks was suspended in 1963 after the closure of the North Shore Line, though they were retained for occasional use; in 1976, they were completely removed from service.

Car 4427, seen here in the Lower 63rd Yard on July 4, 1971, appears to be consigned to work motor service here, though it was never officially converted to a service car. It was near the end of its life, as it would be scrapped exactly one year later in July 1972. Note the bald roofs on these "plushies", which originally had numerous ventilators as well as trolley poles. The roofs were reconfigured while the cars were in Ravenswood service for reasons that are not 100% certain, though possibly to simply make roof repairs easier. (Photo by Joe Testagrose)

Car 4427 is parked in the Lower 63rd Yard among the many construction materials that are commonly stored there on July 4, 1971. The Chicago Skyway is in the background on the right while a CHA apartment building can be seen on the left. Note again the bald roofs on the previously "busy" roofs of these "plushies."
