Tioga Marine Terminal Port Richmond Philadelphia PA August 20 2008
What is buried deep among the miscellaneous cargo at the Tioga Marine Terminal?
Why, it is the SEPTA Silverliner V mockup, of course. Newly arrived aboard the Rickmers Hamburg, it was unloaded the night before, completing its more than a month journey from Korea.
Wednesday morning and it is ready to move, as soon as a banner is hung on the side to proclaim the arrival of first new SEPTA Silverliner in over thirty years.
But there were complications with the route this oversized load would take, so by late afternoon, it was still all dressed up but not yet cleared to go.
One thing the new kid will need before its debut is a really good scrubbing to wash off 12,000 plus miles of grime, courtesy of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
