Delivery and revenue service status of Silverliner V cars

Post by Matthew Mitchell » Wed Mar 09, 2011 8:48 am

Admin Note: adding an image thread to this post by Matthew Mitchell at another user's request. Hope you don't mind. Will check sticky status as well. As we get to more pages I suggest the image code be added as we go.

Hey Alex, let's set up a sticky to contain status reports for delivery of each Silverliner V car and when it entered revenue service.

PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT ONE CAR HAS BEEN ACCEPTED By SEPTA FOR SERVICE! Even though they are running as revenue trains, we don't own them, and they aren't part of our roster of equipment.
All cars are going through their trial phase. Many problems must be resolved and many hours of 'run tests' need to be successfully completed. BTW the heat issue has yet to be resolved.

I took the idea for a status image from the METRA Forum for their rebuilds. As more cars are delilvered, i can change this accordingly. Last date edited is listed.

Note to Mods: Can you add this image code to the first post.
