Station to nowhere?

Just wanted to offer some memories and insight to the mess-up by BART. This is not anything new. I worked in the 60's for Berkeley Pump Co. The company had won the contract to supply pumps in the underground system. Well needless to say it was a total mess right from the beginning. For example when the concrete was done the mounting bolts for our pumps were to be placed in the concrete while it was wet. Well someone must have thrown them in because they were sticking in all directions and delayed plus cost the project to complete it the right way the second time. There were many many other stupid mistake that occurred all through the construction phase.
