 Chicago 'L' - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rarely profitable, the 'L' lines after 1911 came under the control of Samuel Insull, president of the Chicago Edison electric utility (now Commonwealth Edison), whose interest stemmed initially from the fact that the trains were the city's largest consumer of electricity.
By the 1940s the financial condition of the 'L,' and of Chicago mass transit in general, had become too precarious to permit continued private operation, and the necessary steps were taken to enable public takeover.
Iconic of Chicago though it may be, the 'L' is not the city's predominant form of mass transit.

 cbs2chicago.com - Antique 'L' Car Heads For Historical Society
It was built for Chicago's first "L" line, the Chicago & South Side Rapid Transit Co., by the Delaware firm of Jackson & Sharpe in 1892, is built mostly of wood, and has been used only for special occasions since its retirement by the old Chicago Rapid Transit Co. in 1930.
It last appeared on the "L" in 1997, when it was displayed during the celebration of the centennial of the Loop "L." While it made a number of trips with the CTA's two other historical cars in the late 1970s and 1980s, it has become too fragile for use on the "L" structure.
Unlike a similar exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, D.C., in which former CTA "L" car 6719 was cut in pieces for an exhibit depicting a typical 1950s "L" stop, Lewis said Car 1 will remain intact.
