BART car #4079X
« on: November 13, 2019, 03:08:37 PM »
I saw this coming thru Cumberland on a  wide load flatbed westbound on US 40 about 1:30.  Anybody got any ideas about this??

Bart is replacing all of their cars with what is called a future car and has an order of around 775 placed right now and they are being built in upstate New York but the work is eventually supposed to be transferred to a new facility in California.   That is probably what you saw. Last I saw about 200 have been built with about 100 certified to run.
Have a good and safe day!
