BART service delayed by mechanical troubles in Transbay Tube 

Delays up to 25 minutes can be expected on BART after a train with mechanical problems stopped in the Transbay Tube on Wednesday evening.

BART spokesman Linton Johnson said a train headed toward San Francisco International Airport left the West Oakland station around 6:50 p.m. with mechanical troubles. When the train got in the tube, it would not go any farther.

Johnson said the train has been brought back to the West Oakland station and moved out of the way.

The troubles, however, caused delays of up to 25 minutes, Johnson said.

Johnson said he hopes trains will be back on schedule by 8:15 p.m.
