This handout photo, taken in July 2011, provided by the Federal Transit Administration, shows Peter Rogoff, administrator of the Federal Transit Administration looking at electrical equipment at the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s Jenkintown power station that has been operating with outdated circuits and electrical equipment from the 1930s.
