Station Status Boards
A simulated Solari-type board is provided to furnish the status of Amtrak trains at any station that you choose - as if you were there - right now.
If the motion of the "split-flaps" appears slow or choppy, most likely your computer is either slow or too busy doing other things. Try a faster browser, such as Chrome. There is also an option to speed up the flipping action. Finally, there is also a static (non-flipping) option as well.
For a train which is "Overdue" (meaning that the latest expected time report has not been posted), the Solari board will alternate between showing the word "Overdue" and the last report that had been given for that train.
Presented by DixieLandSoftware.net. The Split-Flap display code is made available here by Pete Butler.
"The COVID Pandemic has been and continues to be the biggest challenge faced by Americans as it has taken a deadly toll on the world and on the world’s economies. During COVID Locomotive Engineers at Amtrak and other Passenger and Freight Railroads have embodied the definition of essential workers. This dedication by our members is not new. We applaud the Rail Passenger’s Association for recognizing the vital contributions of our members and their hard work moving Americans and freight during the COVID pandemic."
