The Regional Rail System operates throughout Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks, and Philadelphia Counties in Pennsylvania, New Castle County in Delaware (Wilmington/Newark Line), and also Mercer County in New Jersey (West Trenton and Trenton Lines). The fleet consists of nine (9) different models of rail equipment that are in revenue service.
The Silverliner IV fleet is the current backbone of the SEPTA regional rail fleet. Due to their age and dynamic braking system, these units are the primary trains that SEPTA uses on their rail routes during the weekends.
The push pull fleet is used on both Limited and express runs on the West Trenton, Elwyn, Paoli/Thorndale, Wilmington/Newark, DE and the Trenton lines to their full efficiency; These trains usually consists of 5-7 Comet I/II/III cars. The Comet I fleet was recently obtained from NJT and operates the Pennypack Limited or Neshaminy Limited on the West Trenton Line in the morning and evening. The AEM-7 fleet was built in 1987, whereas the single ALP-44 unit was built in 1996. For more information on their assignments .
