Holiday train soothes grumbly commuters
It's been a busy week for all of us, your Tattler man included, which explains the paucity of posts this week.
With Christmas Day fast upon us, I leave you with photos and links from the CTA's very cool Holiday train. Unfortunately, yesterday was the last day to enjoy the special Santa train on the Yellow Line.
This year, I just happened upon it once on Dec. 18. It was yet another night of delays and slowdowns. People were grumbling. As we sat at the Fullerton Red Line station, it came gliding in south on the Red Line. And commuters' dispositions changed immediately.
There were lots of oooh's and aaah's and look-at-that! Smiles brightened a train car that only moments before was dark with CTA doom and gloom.
