Monday evening, near the tail end of the evening commute, a neighbor who rides to and from BART's Warm Springs Station texted a couple of pictures of something that all BART patrons are waiting for: the agency's new "Fleet of the Future" train cars.
Spoiler alert: You can't ride on the cars yet. But read on.
Our neighbor/informant said the train came down the line from Fremont, meaning it had been traveling BART's main line during regular business hours -- an apparent first.
BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost confirmed Tuesday that the train's appearance at Warm Springs was not a mirage.
"We have expanded the (testing) hours and we are testing on the main line during regular hours," Trost said in an email.
