The old Adelaide Metro livery looked good on trains. Shame they changed it to red to match the new EMUs.

Here's a Jumbo. All retired now.

And a good old 3000 class, which will probably keep going and going until they run out of spare parts for them in about 15. God knows what they'll do with the Belair Line once that day comes.

I'm partial to the classic German two tone on account of I'm German and on account of no frills, no high gloss, no pinstripes, just black and red.

For anyone wondering about the odd colour combination, my guess is a temporary solution. The 4012 had a special, deviating coating for commercial purposes. When the ICM-IV was refurbished to the ICMm-IV in 2008-2010, they replaced the 'walk through head' with a solid plate. The ICMm lost the ability to connect EMUs - this was decided because the connectivity mechanism was known to be very faulty. Hence, I assume the walkthrough system on this specific ICM was broken and they installed a solid plate instead.
(Picture shows the replacement of such frontplate in maintenance yard)

What the fuck was the CTA thinking with these new 7000 series railcars? They look like some plastic Chinese knock off of with that goofy looking fiberglass front end design. What was wrong with the timeless stainless steel design that's been in use since forever?

What the actual fuck is that. It looks like a toy knockoff version of a NYC A-division NTT

I wish I had the chance to ride the old G1 trains. I was born a year after the Gloucester G-series went out of service, but I heard that due to delivery delays of the H-series trains that these were still in service for a few years. I don't remember such a thing, because I was too young.

where did they get the blue idea from? it would have looked fine all black or stainless. I guess the platform edges ventra card and logo are blue, but it doesn't match the general brown and silverness of the system

>the bodies are manufactured by CRRC after they undercut Bombardier
Yeah no wonder it looks like a Chinese toy. The 2400 series concept art from the 1972 unironically looks more modern than this.

>ventra card
Soulless compared to the old transit cards iconography.
>but it doesn't match the general brown and silverness of the system
Nor of the city for that matter. The El and Chicago are mostly antique in character, this weird mismatch of fiberglass and stainless steel wouldn't fit on anywhere because of the obvious art style clash. It would look out of place on a sleek modern metro, it would loo out of place here.
