Subway Portal from Millbrae

This view is from a similar vantage point to that shown on the previous page in this series, but the subway portal is more prominently in view.  The three tracks at Millbrae narrow down to two shortly after trains go into the tunnel. 

BART is capable of operating at 80 mile per hour speeds.  The technology of the system, despite all the problems encountered early on, marked a very major advance in the history of the country's heavy rail transit.
