What the hell is with the hot trains on the Fremont line?
[NOTE - this is NOT in reference to the heat-wave related temperatures of late.]
I've been riding the Fremont line 4 years now, the usual 8 to 5 run in and out of SF, and I've noticed that my train is always, and I mean ALWAYS really hot.
What is the deal with that? Do these trains pick up heat in the East Bay and just carry it around?
Even in the morning, when it is a pleasant 60+ degrees outside, I get on the train and the heat is blasting away like Satan is driving the ****ing thing and it's going straight to hell.
Now, I appreciate the fact that there are people who feel cold, and that the tunnels are cold, and that there are freaks of nature like the woman I saw this morning wearing a heavy coat and scarf even though it was 72F at 6AM in Hayward/Fremont.
What about the rest of us?
I don't want to partake of the 'Shuttle to Mustafar' experience. BART, please turn on the goddamned AC, especially during rush hour when trains are packed and body heat adds to the problem.
