The Brill Bullets were revolutionary vehicles. They were designed in a wind tunnel and constructed of aluminum to be able to achieve top speeds of 100mph. They were built for the Philadelphia & Western Railroad, a third-rail powered, high-speed rail line intended as a competitor to the parallel Pennsylvania RR Main Line. The P&W operated between 69th St. Terminal in Upper Darby, PA and Norristown, PA, a distance of 13.5 miles. The line never reached the company's goal of reaching Harrisburg. Today, it's operated by SEPTA as their Route 100 (Norristown High Speed Line). The Bullets ran until the mid 1990s when they were replaced with new equipment.
