Metra unveiled the first four new Highliner train cars.

These are the first of 160 being built at a plant in Rochelle, Illinois.

The Highliners are replacing older cars that date back several decades.

The new cars feature power outlets for personal electronic devices and new flush toilets.

The first cars will debut on Metra's electric line later this week.
