Passengers at Chicago, March 1962

On a late winter Thursday in 1962, 'L' riders exit a Loop-bound Ravenswood "B" train at Chicago. Today, this would be a Brown Line train.


The rear cars are among the first four cars in a series of single-unit rail cars built for CTA by the St. Louis Car Company in 1959. These cars were painted in a distinctive maroon and silver gray color scheme.
