Evanston Rides the Rails, the latest trip of EHC’s Evanston on the Go, welcomed 129 enthusiastic railroad aficionados on Saturday, November 4.  Aboard vintage 1970s CTA cars, riders saw the trip along the purple and yellow lines in a new light. Railroad historians from the CTA were on board to narrate,  sharing little-known stories of how many independent, local railways eventually became the CTA we know today.

Thank you to all who joined us!
