First time catching the new cars. Granted only been on the Patco twice in the past year. Went last weekend and with a special Flower Show schedule in place they were running at least 3 out of the 5 consists as the new refurb coaches. (6car sets) I have to say it's a shame that the railfan seat is as far back as it is now. Still there but definitely not as good as before. Cars overall smell new and were a nice refresh. You think that the new screens they have at the end of the cars would show more than just an imagine of the PATCO, maybe something similar to PATH (with news and such)

Something similar to SEPTA's SLVs wouldn't be too hard to pull off. I've seen the cars when the system has had some sort of script error and they're not using any technology that is too groundbreaking; the error seemed to be running in Windows XP or even 2000.
