75th Anniversary CTA Day at Fox River Trolley Museum

Looks like this event has already taken place.


365 S La Fox St, South Elgin, IL 60177

Come out and celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Chicago Transit Authority with a special event at the Fox River Trolley Museum featuring passenger and work equipment that previously operated in Chicago.

Enjoy unique photography opportunities and train car rides. The event will feature posed photography opportunities of the museum’s CTA collection in areas not easily accessible to the public, including: the Chicago City Railways 1908 electric locomotive L202,  the recently restored crane car S-314, and the unique 1947 Pullman-Standard articulated steel-aluminum car 5001 posed along the line from Castlemuir to Blackhawk.

We will ride on recently restored 1925 Chicago Elevated Car 4451 and some of the museum’s 1959 St. Louis single cars as we look forward to the next 75 years of the CTA moving the public.
