Climate Change does not spare public transit

12 SEPTA railcars damaged in Trenton by Hurricane Irene getting repairs - "Twelve of the 16 SEPTA railcars stuck in Trenton during Hurricane Irene will be sidelined for weeks as water damage is repaired, SEPTA officials said Tuesday.

Caught by the unexpected rise of a creek that was "not on our radar screen," SEPTA rail operations managers realized too late that the trains could be in harm's way.

They say they will shuffle cars in SEPTA's 365-car fleet to deal with the shortage created by the missing 12 on the Trenton line."
