Several regional media outlets are reporting that SEPTA has discovered cracks in the support system of the Market Frankford Line rail vehicles, resulting in two rail vehicles being removed from service. SEPTA has indicated via Twitter that approximately 1/3 of the Market Frankford Line fleet would be withdrawn for further inspections, resulting in reduced service on Monday. Additional bus service will augment the Market Frankford Line.
Though unrelated, it is reminiscent of the problems that plagued Regional Rail Division vehicles during the summer of 2016.
