BART cars built at Rohr in Chula Vista

In the 60's and 70's Rohr Aircraft in Chula Vista manufactured the BART or Bay Are Rapid Transit cars. Guess what line hauled the cars ti San Francisco? They we loaded on flat cars and shipped to San Francisco on the SP. They made their way to The San Diego Yard and interchanged with The ATSF at 12th St, The went to Los Angeles and interchanged again with The SP at Taylor Yard and then through the San Joaquin Valley or The Coast Line to The Bay Area. I remember in the late 60's seeing them on in San Diego on The SD&AE and in The San Joaquin Valley,

  1. Do any photographs exist of the cars loaded on the Flatcars headed for the Bay Area? That'd make an amazing flatcar load!
