Beta Test Car

El Test Car

The CTA has put these test car(s) on the Red Line. The car has more center-facing seats, which they say gives more room for standing passengers, and those iconic subway hanging straps. The car has fewer seats than a normal Red Line (54), but the same as a Brown or Orange Line train (44). Poop -- I counted while I was on the train, but now I forget. I see if the Rememberer knows.
