CTA Holiday Train
CTA Holiday Train
Yeah! I was so excited. I had yesterday off work, and I was coming home from having lunch with my cousin downtown. While walking down the stairs with all the other commuters, I heard the inbound train come in. Only this train sounded DIFFERENT. There was Christmas music. There was a friendly real person's voice saying, "come all aboard. all aboard now!" Was my ears hearing this correctly? Was this... was this THE HOLIDAY TRAIN!? Wasting no time, I zipped past the other commuters down the stairs and ran up the inbound stairs. My big boots clugging along the stairs. I could hear the real person's voice saying, "all aboard, all aboard!" As I got to the top of the stairs there was THE HOLIDAY TRAIN with the doors still open, so I hopped on. The CTA holiday train is truly a Christmas delight. Decorated all over the place. The seats, the poles, the lights, the windows, everything! A woman dressed up as an elf came over to me and offered me a candy cane which I happily took. The one very odd thing was how empty the train was. It was about 4:00pm on Thursday and the train was going downtown. So while the train was empty now, wow, that train was gonna be packed for rush hour. I was tempted to ride the train all around the loop. Although, I already spent 50 minutes getting home in the first place, I didn't really want to spend an extra 90 minutes to get home. I got off the train at Paulina. Five stops on the holiday train was enough to grab these photos. Although, in retrospect, I should have, because it would have been fun to see the commuters response to the train.
