BART Back in Service -- October 22, 2013

On the news last night, BART unions announced that they had settled and would return to work today.  A BART spokesperson said that they may be able to have trains rolling at 4am, but perhaps not full service.  I'm afraid the death of two people who were struck by a train over the weekend helped to spur the settlement.  The two men were inspecting track and were struck by a train running under computer control.  The operator was a "trainee," which must mean a manager being trained as a scab. 

I worked from home today. 

I took the photo on Friday in the Embarcadero Station.  During the first part of the strike, the station had hand-lettered signs.
