The complete roll-out of SEPTA’s super-sleek Silverliner V cars will be pushed back, reports 

    One three-car “pilot train” has been running on the commuter rail system since October.

    Three more cars were supposed to be ready Friday but have been delayed three to four weeks, said the report, after production problems were encountered at the South Philadelphia facility where final assembly of the cars is being done after being shipped from South Korea. All told, SEPTA is buying 120 cars from a South Korean company for $274 million.
