L Car No. 1 on the Move

February 9th, 2012by Enrique GonzalezFiled under: Collections, Exhibitions

See Chicago’s first-ever L car travel from the CTA’s storage facility in Skokie to the Chicago History Museum. Contractors took two days (January 18 and 19, 2006) to relocate the 42,000-pound artifact and carefully lift it into the second floor of our building. Russell Lewis, the Museum’s chief historian and executive vice president, narrates the video, explaining the origins of the L and its importance to Chicago.
