Hyundai-Rotem Philadelphia Plant Philadelphia PA October 1 2009
With the arrival yesterday of the first production Silverliner V shells, the Hyundai-Rotem plant in South Philadelphia will finally have something to do. Earlier this month workers were still putting finishing touches to the exterior, while the electrified test track carved out of the CSX trackage between Oregon Avenue and Wolf Street is wired up and ready. After the renovations, the facility looks a lot better than it did in December of last year, the rest of the area not so much.
Looking south from Wolf Street at the test track and adjacent test shop.
More from Wolf Street, this time the transfer table that will shuttle the cars along the lines.
