MacArthur in the Seventies

The above photo is at the MacArthur Station in Oakland, and dates from 1976 -- four years or so after the system began operation.  The original route ran from this point southeast to Fremont, about 28 miles. 

BART is four-tracked side-by-side here, the only location on the system configured this way.  Three lines use this station.  This train is on the route that stays on the East Bay, and is southbound for Fremont, from Richmond.
