Project Description

Equipment and Non-Revenue Vehicles (Diesel Locomotives): Funding will provide for the replacement of CTA's diesel locomotive snow fighters. The self-propelled locomotives with special attachments to remove snow and ice during severe winter weather conditions are able to operate and clear system track, so that CTA can safely power up the system to restore/provide service. When traction power is down, this equipment will also be used to move rolling stock to secure locations.
