Welcome to Eddie's Railfan Page.

Hello Everyone! Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page. Today is our First Aniversary, (actually one month ago today.) here at My Railfan Site.
Thank you for Logging on, and enjoy your ride.

Today is "Bus Day" here at Eddie's Railfan Page, and we are Honoring the Chicago Transit Authority's Electric Trolleybuses, wich operated in the City of Chicago from 1930 to 1973. As Electric Streetcars were being "Phased Out", many of the old trolley lines were Converted to Electric Bus operation. Many electrical substations and facilites were still in place, and it was more economical to add an extra overhead wire in each lane. CTA's Propane and Diesel Buses eventually phased out the Electric Bus Operations for numerous economic reasons. This is your Host and Photographer "Eddie" inviting you to experience Chicago's Electric Buses.
