The Snowflake Special chartered CTA/ IRM excursion. Chicago Illinois USA. April 1986.

In April of 1986, the Chicago Transit Authority and the Illinois Railway Museum operated this rapid transit charter in Chicago. Seen here is a train of soon to be retired CTA 6000 series rapid transit cars. The two yellow cars have already been demoted to maintenance and snowplow service. The train is spotted here at the end of the days run, at the Kimball Avenue terminal. This is todays west terminal for the Brown Line, but back then...It was known as the Ravenswood Elevated line.
