About Me

My photo
I am from Chicago one of the most overlooked cities when it comes to graffiti or anything else.I started taking pictures of graffiti in the fall of 05' and instantly got hooked. My goal is to put Chicago on the map to show that not only L.A. and New York have a thriving graffiti scene. One day i plan to turn this hobby into a 9 to 5. I want to show people the many wonders this world has to offer through my photography. I want to expose them to the things they turn a blind eye to on a daily basis to make them realize that there is more to the world then the cubicle that surrounds them.

Attention CTA Rail Fans!!!

I was able to squeeze in a quick news read before I keep going on this busy ass day.

If you know me you know I'm a huge rail fan. If i could live on the CTA rail car, I honestly would (In a clean one at least). This is pretty freakin awesome!!!

"True rail enthusiasts and train buffs in general will jump at the chance to ride nearly every CTA train line on the CTA's oldest cars in revenue service -- the 2200-series cars built in 1969-70. You'll get that chance at 9 am on Sunday, March 28, starting at the Rosemont/River Road station on the Blue Line.

This opportunity to ride these cars all day before they are finally replaced beginning next year is provided by the Illinois Railway Museum. The $42 ticket will help the all-volunteer museum purchase indoor storage space for CTA cars already at the museum, located in Union.

The IRM's Snowflake Special will take riders over just about every rail line and through plenty of non-revenue and yard trackage."

2200-series rails cars were first put into service in 1969. They will be replaced starting in 2011 by the 5000 series cars. (Photo by Joe Testagrose from www.chicago-l.org)
