Remarks: The end is near for these Silverliner IVs. SEPTA is preparing to test new Silverliner Vs in the upcoming weeks. This is the first purchase of new EMU equipment by SEPTA in over 30 years. This new equipment is meant to serve with the Silverliner IIIs and IVs, but will soon replace them. 2008 Trainiac Productions

With ridership as high as it is and the fact that the IVs were overhauled not too long ago, I think that the IVs will be running under SEPTA colors for quite a few years.

Yeah, its the former RDG/PRR Budd & St. Louis Cars that the new equipment will replace in operations...not the GEs.

I dont think the Siverliner IV will be retired any time soon They will be needed to supplant the rush hour ridership

The Silverliner V are going to replace the Silverliner II and III. The Silverliner IV have at least 10 more years as there is a rumored Silverliner VI coming out to replace them at that time.
