Still in its Mercury Green, Croydon Cream, Swamp Holly Orange paint scheme, car 6293 brings up the rear of a Jackson Park-Howard All-Stop at Howard on July 21, 1968. The scene gives an interesting look at 1960s-era CTA signage, including the pre-CTA blue and white enamel station sign on the extreme left which reads "Howard - City Limits".

A Jackson Park-Howard "B" train, led by 6313, passes "A" station Indiana on October 2, 1972. Note the extra wide northbound platform. Originally, there was a third track where the forward part of the platform is now (the track occupied by 6313 was an express track). The Kenwood branch continued straight from where the tracks turn right in the background. Another train of 6000s passes on the southbound track. (Photo by Steve Zabel. Collection of Joe Testagrose)
