In the name of history and preservation, then-General Operations Manager Harold H. Geissenheimer led the restoration of cars 6101-6102 (unique for never having been retrofitted with moved headlights and roller signs and thus the only 1st version 6000 in its original appearance) in its mercury green, croydon cream and swamp holly orange scheme. By 1990, they were out of revenue service, but remained in work service as late as 1993, available for charter. They have since been obtained by the Fox River Trolley Museum, where they currently reside. On the occasion of his 75th Birthday, the cars were presented to ex-CTA president and transit historian George Krambles. The cars are seen here at the Rosemont Yard on March 18, 1990.

6000-series cars (at center) stored at the Skokie Shops in early 1999. It is one of several cars that had been originally sold to David Harrison in hopes of preserving them and perhaps someday operating them on the CTA as a 'living' museum exhibit. When negotiations fell through, the cars were sold back to the CTA. (Photo by David Harrison)

Car 6719-6720 (renumbered S-476 when assigned to work service) stands covered in graffiti at the Skokie Shops in August 1999. Car 6720 (pictured) will most likely be scrapped, while its mate, 6719 (not pictured) will probably go to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC. (Photo by Graham Garfield)
