Promoted as the "World's First All Electric Streamliners", the Electroliner ran between the downtown Loop and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
"When I was 5-6 years old my Mom and I would take the "L" to church every Sunday between suburban Evanston, Ill., and Chicago. The trains of the CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) were colorful yet hardly eye-popping, but each Sunday I used to see one train that was the exception to the normal livery."
"My mom called it "The Mysterious Train." To a kid of my age, the existence of this outrageous looking train was pure magic!"
