These photos, courtesy of “The Iceman Cometh”, were taken this morning while BART was in the process of removing the derailed train cars from the tracks at the Concord BART station.

As we previously reported, a BART train derailed at the Concord station on Friday night just before 7pm.

No injuries were reported, and no passengers were on the out-of-service train at the time of the derailment.

BART expects repairs to last through Saturday night.

Thanks again to “The Iceman Cometh” for the pictures!

#1 – Actually, it was a wide pattern for 19L. The News 5 copter came in a few minutes later, presumably to get some B roll.

Unbelieveable; i picked a good week to be sick; i’m so FED UP WITH BART; waste of taxpayer dollars for an undependable system managed by a bunch of idiots that don’t have a clue how to manage and maintain public transportation. Get the 2008 track workers back that left before the last strike because of BART’s loudsy package. The only ones that make out at BART just go the bank.

BART IS NO LONGER SAFE OR DEPENDABLE. WHEN IS SOMEBODY GOING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!!

This is the SECOND derailment at Concord; the first one the train went off the tracks when being pulled into the station happened a year or two ago.

@Iceman – Ok, I expected some sort of correction to my observation since the observation point is not aligned with the runway. For me, when the controller said “report 3 mile final” that meant the BART maint. yard.
I don’t know what “B roll” is.

“B Roll” is a media term for supplemental or alternative footage intercut with the main shot in an interview, documentary, or news report.
