SEPTA Takes Delivery Of Last New Silverliner Car

The Inquirer reports:

SEPTA received its last Silverliner V railcar on Wednesday, completing the long-delayed delivery of 120 new cars purchased in 2006 for $274 million.

The total cost, including spare parts and associated training and management, is $330 million.

The last railcar was nearly three years late, as production snags – including material delays, design flaws, labor-management disputes, and workmanship problems – put delivery far behind schedule.

Yes, but doesn’t Regional Rail feel so much more luxurious now?
