BART'S OWN RAIL GRINDER SMOOTHS THE RIDE

Bay Area Rapid Transit has its own Speno rail grinding train which operates each weekend when no passenger service is operated. Regular cycles of grinding, dependent on location, are scheduled for all of BART's 142 miles of double-track line. Curvature, stations, and segments where corrugations develop come in for concentrated attention.
