Save the CTA, rent a train

CTA has a charter train program. I saw this and thought, “With all the current budget problems the CTA is having, why don’t they try to market this more? It’s awesome!” Starting at $1,200, you can rent your very own train. YOUR VERY OWN TRAIN. And you can eat on it, drink O’Douls on it, and have live music on it. Now that is an awesome idea.

In other, more heart-string pulling train related news, a little boy has a Metra train named after him. Ollie Tibbles, who passed away last year from a brain tumor, had told his mother that he wanted to be a train when he grew up. Now, the Ollie train will run on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe line.
