Mechanical problem fills 16th Street BART station with smoke, delays trains 

BART is recovering from a mechanical problem on a train that caused smoke to fill the 16th Street Mission station platform Monday morning, agency officials said.

BART officials said at 7:15 a.m. that there were major delays in the East Bay direction because of the mechanical problem.

Passengers got off of the train safely and the station platform was evacuated while crews ventilated the station and removed the train from the tracks, a dispatcher said.

Service is getting back to normal, but there were still residual delays for East Bay-bound trains as of shortly before 8 a.m., the dispatcher said.
