There's supposed to be another new OL train appearing soon to join the first 2 already in use, I think between now & next month.

NETransit reports that 1414/1415 were delivered 2/20/20 to Wellington. Given that 1400-1411 are currently in service as the two trainsets, that means we now have four out of six cars necessary for a third trainset. 1412/1413 were delivered November 2019. That's 3 months between each married pair. At that rate... well it's not good...

I think they're producing them at the expected rate and they're building up in Springfield. Also, it's not 3 months between each pair, it's 3 months between this one and the last one, in which time they had to develop a solution to a technical problem and retrofit the trains.

I'm not saying it's perfect, but it doesn't make sense to just extrapolate these two points.
