BART says goodbye to first of many legacy cars

Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – BART decommissioned it’s first legacy car on Friday to help make space for arriving Fleet of the Future trains.

The BART train car 2528, also called Felicia, went into full service in 1995.

The BART train retired in 2014 and is estimated to have traveled about 2.2 million miles.

As new trains are added, storage becomes limited for older cars.

Felicia was one of 10 cars sold to Schnitzer Steel in Oakland to be shredded. Valuables will also be recycled.
