New schedule changes take effect today for some SEPTA Regional Rail Lines.

The schedule changes are due to the addition of newly leased rail cars, according to a post on SEPTA's website.

The schedule changes impact the following five rail lines:

  • Glenside Combined
  • Landsdale/Doylestown
  • Manayunk/Norristown
  • Trenton
  • Warminster

The schedules for all other lines remain the same.

SEPTA's been running a modified rail schedule after it was discovered in early July that 120 of its rail cars were found to be defective after inspections revealed fatigue cracks in the equalizer beams.

During a press conference last week, SEPTA officials said about 10 cars will be put back into service each week starting the week of August 21 after undergoing a series of repairs, with all 120 cars removed back in service by the week of November 6.
