@SFBART that was stopped in the Transbay Tube is out of the way and headed to a pocket track in Oakland. Delays should be diminishing— SFBART (@SFBART) April 12, 2017
A photo from inside the train shows the darkness passengers experienced, except for the light from one person's phone that lit up his face.
According to BART, a brake malfunctioned on the train, briefly stopping it inside the tube. The delay was first announced at 3:41 p.m.
Trains are moving - we know it's crowded, please stay safe and away from the incoming trains on the platform! Service restored thru tube.— SFBART (@SFBART) April 12, 2017
Video from the Embarcadero station shows the crowds of people waiting to get on trains.
An engineer was reportedly able to help get that train moving, but BART is seeing major delays systemwide.
