Depression Era Wire Cause of SEPTA Regional Rail Disruptions

SEPTA had disruptions on two lines of its Regional Rail on Wednesday into Thursday. Based on the statement it put out, you are relying on Depression Era wire to make it to work or home on time.

That portion of the statement can only be seen if you click “see more” in the Facebook post below. To save you the trouble, here it is, “This particular section of wire dates back to the early 1930s, and is among the catenary SEPTA is actively replacing throughout the Regional Rail system.” Well, at least they are replacing it.
