The second group of 4000-series cars -- the "Plushies" -- certainly earned their nickname, with wood moldings, glass lampshades, and comfortable stuffed seats with plush fabric coverings, seen here in the interior of car 4420 at the East Troy Electric Railroad Museum in Summer 2001.

4000-series car 4244, built by the Cincinnati Car Company in 1915, is in the yard at Kimball Avenue in November, 1963 after completing a Ravenswood "A" run. Car 4244 is an original version 4000, which had center doors. However, the car has had the center door filled in, so that it presents a smooth side appearance, albeit with odd window spacing where the door used to be. This work was done in the CTA era, along with a number of other improvements to the 4067-series cars. (Photo by Jerry Appleman)

This is one of many postcards issued in the mid-1940s to celebrate and promote the opening of Chicago's first subway. Many featured artists' renderings, but some like this one featured actual photos. Note the abundance of uniformed personnel on the train, as well as at least one on the platform, in this posed photo showing the gleaming new platform. (Postcard from the Graham Garfield Collection)
