Take CTA to World Series from Westchester? Hmmmm

Longtime CTA Tattler reader Bob, lamented in an email that he misses my post, since my new job precludes me from writing much anymore. Why thanks, Bob.

But he was kind enough to share this photo that he took at Friday night’s World Series game in Wrigley Field.

“The retro map is by the stairs that lead from the bleachers’ ground level to sections 311 and 312 in right field. I hope the out-of-town fans headed to Westchester, Kenwood, and the Stock Yards reached their destinations last night.”

  • Is this sign a new sign made to look old, or it is an original one that was never removed?

  • In reply to Commentator:

    Unlike some replica Insull posters that say CTA, this doesn't, but one would have to consider the odds of this lasting for about 69 years.* Possible, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    Besides that, the link says "fake CTA map."

    *Skokie (then called Niles Center route, which may give you a clue) out of service in 1948, Westchester out of service in 1951.

    I'm the one who took the photo. The wall where this map appears was built as part of the bleacher reconstruction which concluded in May 2015. So the paint job intentionally made the map look older than it really is.

  • Welcome back. I was worried about you. Glad you're alright.

  • My login still works...good.

    What's all this about new buses? Anyone know if the seat configuration is acceptable/
