What is this?

This is the notorious BART train or Bay Area Rapid Transit. As seen on many special news broadcasts, for good and bad, BART is a well known and reliable public transportation service that gets the job done. I use it, you probably use it, your friend uses it; it's a good way to avoid the terrible commute to the City, amongst other places in the Bay Area in California, USA. 

Why did I build it?

To honor the legacy of the "Legacy Fleet" since it is due for decommission from service in 2022.

As seen on NBC Bay Area and SF Gate!
