A 6-car Ravenswood train stops at Clark/Lake on May 26, 1978. Note the two transfer bridges: since through-routing began in 1913, Clark/Lake has been a busy transfer station. The station was replaced in 1988. (Photo by Ed McKernen, Collection of Joe Testagrose)

Cars 6101-6102 are seen in the Kimball Yard on the Ravenswood Line on August 30, 1982 not long after becoming a Heritage Train. Then-General Operations Manager Harold Geissenheimer had 6101-6102, which still retained its original headlight/destination sign configuration restored to its 1950s appearance.

Two eras of equipment: restored Heritage Car 6101 and a 2400-series car provide an interesting contrast and a demonstration of how car design changed over the course of two decades while waiting at Kimball terminal. Note the two different types of "Ravenswood All-Stop" signage on the trains. (Collection of Joe Testagrose)

Car 6101 leads a Ravenswood "B" train with a rather interesting consist - cars 6101-6102, a 1-50 series unit, and a 5000-series unit in the rear - on August 8, 1981. The consist is especially interesting in light of the fact that, according to car rosters from the time, only 6101-6102 are actually assigned to Ravenswood service!
