The CTA Will Sport Wienermobile Train Cars Through September

Even if you're still not willing to forgive Kraft Heinz for that memorable 'Chicago Dog Sauce' stunt, you might be feel a bit more magnanimous toward one of their hot-dog subsidiary's upcoming bid for attention, especially if your inner child has a soft spot for Oscar Mayer's Wienermobile.

Starting this month, select CTA trains will be covered in large-scale wrap to mimic the famed weiner car. There's no set schedule, according to an Oscar Mayer rep, but we do know it'll run through early September along Blue and Brown Line tracks. It's the first time the Chicago-headquartered company has Weinermobile-ized a train car.

And if there's one thing we Chicagoans are hopeless to resist, it's a visually transformed train car.
