Chicago Franchise Episodes Timeline

As a lot of people are getting interested with the franchise but don’t know where to begin since there are so many crossovers between the three, now four shows, I made a list that could come in handy. I also wanted to go back and binge watch from the start without getting confused with the timeline. I will be updating this list weekly or so as I’m watching the new episodes (except Justice, because TWD).

Anyways, enjoy ! DM me if anything’s incorrect !

Historical Maps: Rail Transit in North America, 1984 by Dennis McClendon

I thought I was all done with “to scale” maps of North American rail systems, but then Dennis McClendon (see previous posts from him) sent in this beautiful series of maps that he produced for Planning magazine back in 1984. I’ve split his double-page spread up into two separate images so that they can be viewed in better detail on Tumblr. Dennis himself says:

Given this week’s Tumblr theme, I thought you might be interested in these maps that I did in 1984, when I worked for Planning magazine. The “new wave” of modern light rail systems was just getting started. My initial idea was to do them all at the same scale, but integrating them with the text into a two-page magazine layout eventually required a compromise of doing them at two distinctive scales.

No GIS or even Illustrator in those days: I created these using Rubylith and Chartpak flexible line tape.

Of note is the large number of systems that were either brand new or still under construction: Portland’s “Banfield” line – now the main section of line between downtown and Gateway – being especially noticeable to me. Also – massive extensions under construction for the Washington DC Metro, and the parlous state of streetcars in New Orleans, with service on the historical St. Charles line only.

And just to throw further fuel onto the fire regarding the categorization of certain systems as either light rail or streetcar, which many commenters on Matt Johnson’s map brought up. In 1984 at least: Pittsburgh and Boston’s Green Line were classified as “light rail” while Philadelphia and the San Francisco Muni were seen as “streetcar”. Make of that what you will.

So last night i went to the heavy and light tour. It was easily the most wonderful and beautiful nights i could ever experience. It was nice to be able to forget all my problems and worries for a night. I felt so close with everyone in the room and it was amazing. I didn’t get to meet anyone sadly. However, this night has made me happy and strong. I will now treat everyone with kindness and newfound respect. Cause everyone is going through something. They all have a story.

Im so glad i switched my major to music. Because honestly, I wanna be a part of something like this.

I met new people and was genuinely moved by the music and the speakers

I already wanna go back..
