I remember well the test tracks being built and running a test train between Concord and Pleasant Hill. Our family business was located there and we watching the operation unfold in front of us daily. A model train was set up that you could tour and it looked like something out of a movie. Who would have ever thought 40 years later, it is nothing to see these trains all over the bay area. I am glad I am still around to see it grow.

"Free ice cream from corporate sponsor Dreyer's and bundt cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes of Emeryville will be up for grabs at stations throughout the Bay Area starting on Sept. 29 at San Francisco's Powell and Oakland's Rockridge stations from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Ice cream giveaways will also be held on Oct. 13 and Oct. 27 at four other stations."
BART has signs posted in all stations cautioning people that they can be cited for eating or drinking in the station or on the trains. And so BART gives away free food...
It's a rule honored more in the breach than the observance, anyway.
