Re: Here Ya Go...CTA New 5000 ACs (PHOTOS)

C.T.A. is resurecting the name 5000 series? Nice pictures. IIRC, the original 5000 series was a test set like the R11/R34s were.

IINM, CTA doesn't duplicate numbers between the subway and bus fleets. Really the 2000s, 4000s, 6000s, etc. have also been "resurrected," but as buses.

Old 5000s, in service 1947-1985:

Only four trains were built; three survive (as of February).
