Sail On, Silver Girl

This week I rode on one of SEPTA's new Silverliner cars. They don't quite have the well-worn character that the older regional rail cars do. The shaped plastic seats (2 to a side, not the 3 - 2 arrangement of the old cars) don't have any upholstery. For a blade runner feel there are screens (showing ads when I looked at them) . The cars are newer, look newer, smell newer, have that sterile newer feel. It will take a little time to get used to them.
