Join the members of the Illinois Railway Museum as they tour the Chicago Transit Authority's "L" lines. This year's Snowflake Special is planned to be, well, special! For IRM's 60th Annivarsary Year we've arranged an EIGHT-CAR TRAIN, with a pair of each of the DC propulsion cars left on CTA's system:
Last year, we sold out and had to turn patrons away. You are strongly advised to buy your tickets in advance.
To assemble this unique train, CTA needs to transfer some cars between lines. Rather than "deadhead" without passengers, we can use this opportunity to give you a choice in the length of your trip, boarding location, and fare:
Parking is available for $5 at Midway and Forest Park. Riders may also board at Racine on the Blue Line at approximately 10:00 am. To board train at this alternate station, hold up ticket in plain view of motorman and excursion crew.
Lunch: One hour will be given at lunch stops around the Loop. A restaurant list is provided to riders.
All cars except the 2200 series are wheelchair-accessible; consult CTA for station accessibility.
This Snowflake Special excursion is a fundraiser to preserve a pair of 2200- and 2400-series cars.
