Re: Bombardier BART cars

BART isn't a Subway, it's a 1960's vision Long Island Railroad. It was always meant to bring people to downtown SF and Oakland from car friendly suburbs. Regarding the gauge I've never had any reason to believe it wasn't chosen for capacity and performance reasons. BART's whole ethos was to re-define rail transportation. Broad gauge would be right in line with that. I wouldn't doubt SP had their own machinations, but BART didn't need much convincing.
