Could Brookville equipment even gear up for a pivoting bogie low floor model similar to Skoda's ForCity?
Been there, done that:

Would Brookville have the ability to gear up for the production line necessary to re-equip a system the size of Philly's? It's one thing to fulfill boutique orders for cities like Milwaukee and Detroit. The Liberty is a nice car but can it be mass produced?
