Looking south from Fullerton station on June 5, 2014, car 5187 leads Red Line run 825 as it negotiates the curve where the four tracks fan out in approach to the station to accommodate the two island platform between the four tracks. At the same time, a Loop-bound Purple Line Express train, also of 5000-series cars, passes on Track 1. Armitage station and the former tower building are visible in the background.

A Loop-bound Purple Line Express train pass through Leland Interlocking the morning of March 9, 2015, the first day the interlocking was officially in service. The train's merging from Track 1 onto Track 2, which it would share with 95th-bound Red Line trains, signals the beginning of 'three-track operation' through Wilson station, part of the reconstruction phasing to allow Track 1 to be demolished and rebuilt.

Car 5470 leads a Loop-bound Purple Line Express train passing Wilson on March 6, 2015. The train is moving off the old concrete viaduct freight lead onto the single-track connector back to the steel elevated structure -- which together, constituted southbound Track 1 -- all of which would be removed from service at the end of the day for demolition. Construction for the new station and elevated structure is visible around the site. (Photo by Corey Ellison)

Car 5675 sits on a low-boy trailer in Lower 63rd Yard on July 22, 2015. While Skokie Shops was isolated from the rest of the "L" system during mid-2015 due to an embankment collapse on the Yellow Line, 5000-series cars that had been delivered were stranded and had to be trucked to another yard on the system in order to be put into service; car 5675 was the first car transferred.

5000-series car 5677 was in 63rd Lower Yard on July 24, 2015, still mounted on its trailer after being moved from Skokie, awaiting being moved off the trailer by the Shuttlewagon yard switching locomotive. (Photo by David Harrison)

Car 5682 is at the end of its journey being trucked from Skokie Shops to 63rd Yard, as the trailer truck turns from East 63rd Street into the yard's front gate on July 31, 2015. Note the particularly low floor of the trailer -- this is necessary so the load can clear under viaducts, but also makes the routing very tightly planned. (Photo by David Harrison)

As the transfer of 5000-series cars from Skokie Shops to Lower 63rd Yard continues due to Skokie's cutoff from the rest of the "L" system, car 5682 makes its way down State Street, passing 59th Street and the Ashland branch of the Green Line, on July 31, 2015. (Photo by David Harrison)
