Bicycle Tie Downs For SEPTA Trains. YES!

David W. Casper, Assistant Chief Engineer of SEPTA's New Vehicle Programs Department confirmed that bicycle tie downs will be included in the wheelchair access area of the new Silverliner V rail cars. Delivery of the first rail cars are expected in October of 2009 with 20 rail cars delivered every month until 2011.

How is the delivery of 20 cars a month for 15 months (from 10/2009 until 1/2010) possible. I thought the Silverliner V orders were for only 120 new cars. Using the 20/month figure would amount to 300 new cars.
