    The CTA had pressed 40 new 5000-series cars into service on the Pink Line, and 52 more had been delivered, when they were all suddenly withdrawn because of multiple flaws in the wheel assemblies.

    The CTA has a $1 billion contract for 706 new rail cars with Bombardier Transportation of Canada.
