Snowflake Special at Night

Here's a brief pictorial revue of the night-time run of this year's SnowFlake Special.  A good time was had by all.  The holiday train is certainly different.  Here it is at the Harlem and Lake terminal.

All the CTA employees involved were very friendly and helpful.  Here, for example, is the supervisor for the trip, John Zupko.

We even had a photo runby, which is not easy to do when there's lots of regular service going on.  This is on the reverse curve at Sheridan on the North-South line.

There was a slight delay at Howard when an unauthorized person got on the tracks, but this was handled very quickly and efficiently by the CTA and the local police and firemen. 

A photo stop at the Conservatory station on the Lake St. line:

So we even had a nice nighttime view of the Garfield Park Conservatory.
