While on board the train, I heard the conductor spout several bits of train inaccuracies. He told one passenger that BART runs all the way to San Jose now. (There's a BART extension under construction, but it will be many, many years before BART reaches downtown San Jose.) He also said that the "Bullet Trains" in Japan go 300 miles per hour. (They travel at a top speed of 300 kilometers per hour, which is 186 MPH in old money.) I like trains more than most people, but I would prefer giving people accurate information.
