About 400 passengers on a BART train that became disabled between stations Monday morning disembarked from the train and walked to the 12th Street Oakland City Center station, an agency spokeswoman said. The train had stalled between the Lake Merritt and 12th Street stations in downtown Oakland around 10 a.m. BART spokeswoman Anna Duckworth said as of around noon, delays persisted on all lines systemwide. A rescue train pulled the disabled one to an area near the MacArthur station, where it is out of the way of other train traffic and will remain until at least Monday night, Duckworth said. The train had been Richmond-bound on the Fremont line when it got stuck on the tracks. As of about noon, BART officials did not know what had caused the train to stop.
