A four-car train of 6000s is ascending the incline from the Milwaukee-Dearborn Subway onto the Milwaukee Elevated, looking southeast along Linden Place circa 1976. Before 1970, the elevated continued straight ahead another quarter-mile to the Logan Square yard and terminal. The subway connects the elevated to the Kennedy Extension. (Photo by Michael Roegner)

Photographed on the one day of the week when two-car trains operated midday on the otherwise busy North-South Route, cars 6405-06 is heading southbound around the curve approaching Sheridan station on the Englewood-Howard All-Stop run on Sunday, June 26, 1966. Note that the train is operating on Track 1 (the express track) rather than Track 2 (the typically-used local track). This is because after Sheridan the train will be stopping at Addison (usually a "B" stop), which at the time had side platforms and was not accessible from the center express tracks.

A North-South train of 6000s on its way to Loomis/63 nears the top of the incline from the 13th Street portal in June 1968. The Englewood-Howard All-Stop train is bearing a "Baseball Today" sign, meaning a game is on at one of the two ballparks served by the route. The shot is taken from a fantrip train heading north on the South Side Elevated to the Loop. At the time, the incline from the subway was in regular use by North-South trains, while the track the fantrip train was on was used only for special movements; today the situation is reversed.

Restored to its original paint scheme by CTA® in the 1980s and kept for several years as one of the cars in its historic collection, cars 6101-6102 are now housed at the Fox River Trolley Museum. Car 6102 is seen on October 10, 2004 in the museum's yard. 6101-02 was one of only two carsets that retained its original headlight configuration. (Photo by Graham Garfield)

Chicago's worst snowstorm of the 20th century occurred in January 1967. Snow began to fall on Thursday, January 26 and continued to fall through Friday morning for a total accumulation of 23 inches, with drifts to 6 feet. Cold weather and periodic snowfalls over the next 10 days created more havoc. On the second day after a record breaking snowfall, CTA® trains of the 6511-6720 series turn back in the 54th Avenue Yard on January 29, 1967. The loop and most of the yard tracks were snowbound.

In the mid-1950s, the North Main Line was an interesting mix of equipment: the CTA's® newest, the 6000-series, and some of its oldest wood cars. Although the Ravenswood Line had a handful of 6000s assigned too, a good portion of service was still provided by half-century-old wood cars. A former-Met car is operating on a southbound Ravenswood "A" run on the left, while a Jackson Park "B" train led by a flat-door 6000-series car and a Howard "A" train trailed by a curved-door pair of 6000s pass on the inner express tracks at Armitage Interlocking on June 1, 1956.
