Silverliner foibles

    As the Philadelphia Inquirer reported this morning, SEPTA’s only new Silverliner V train in service is still experiencing problems.

    “The three-car train that was put into revenue service Oct. 29 is plagued with communications glitches and sometimes has trouble getting up hills. The wheels have a tendency to slip during acceleration.”
