November 16, 2016

Additional new CTA-themed gifts for the holiday shopping season include Heritage Collection toy rail cars and CTA children’s backpacks

With the holiday season just around the corner, the Chicago Transit Authority is expanding its line of popular CTA and Chicago-themed gifts at www.ctagifts.com.

Among the new items are three different toy rail cars, the beloved CTA holiday train and two new Heritage Collection toy train cars from the 2400- and 6000-series.  A children’s backpack will also be available.   

CTA enthusiasts can again look forward to traditional holiday favorites, including the Ornament ‘L’ car, which is an ornament train car that is made out of blown glass that is hand-painted and glittered. Also in stock are seasonal best sellers such as knit caps, mugs, T-shirts, socks featuring the ‘L’ map, puzzles and more.

In addition to these items, CTAGifts will continue to offer unique clothing, accessories, jewelry, books, posters, DVDs and stationary. In fact, many CTA items for sale including coffee mugs and T-shirts can be personalized to reflect favorite CTA rail lines, stations and bus stops.

CTAGifts also has gifts for kids covered, offering an array of toys, books, puzzles, play costumes and more. 

For historical collectors, CTAGifts will again stock the popular CTA Heritage Collection, which offers a large assortment of memorabilia and items from the pre-CTA era. The Heritage Collection includes items from Chicago Elevated Railways and Chicago Rapid Transit, as well as articles from several past CTA logos and marketing campaigns.

Gift certificates are also available. For more information, visit CTAGifts.com.
