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?

Been there, done that:

Only offerings from that company are fixed bogie models with part high floor.
