Holiday Train makes its 2011 maiden voyage Friday on Green, Orange lines

The holiday season doesn’t open with the premature Black Friday sales on Thursday night. No, it starts at 3:07 pm Friday at the Midway station of the Orange Line when the first Holiday Train pulls out of the station.

Here’s the general schedule:

The CTA Holiday Train will operate on the Green Line and Orange Line from about 3 pm to about 7 pm.

  • The train will make one trip from Midway to Harlem/Lake, via downtown.
  • The train will make one trip from Harlem/Lake to Cottage Grove.
  • The train will make one trip from Cottage Grove to Midway, via downtown Loop.

And here’s the detailed schedule.

Save the date: Dec. 10 for Tattler outing

This year’s CTA Tattler Holiday Train outing will be Saturday, Dec. 10, when Santa hits the Blue Line. Watch this space for details. We’ll probably meet up in the Loop, and head north. After the ride, I will buy a cup of good cheer of your choice for all who join us. These are photos from last year’s Tattler outing.
