Re: Hugo interlock replacement

There is now a long work train sitting in New Yard complete with camp cars. There was a train of welded rail that went past tonight but it did not stop at New Yard. Does anyone know what they are working on?

Re: ATCS Dispatch Display Question

ATCS help

When I open ATCS it says requesting data feed from the server and all that, but then it says that the connection was 'forcefully rejected.' It says monitering after that, but no data comes in and everything's blank. What do I do?

Computer Help

Although this has nothing to do with trains, does anyone know how to figure out what video card you have and how good of one do you need to be recording TV straight to our computer?

According to the article I read, it was a Norfolk Southern, and obviously no one was hurt on the freight train.

FWWA

At about quarter to 10, a train called 'FWWA' was at Mike. What is FWWA? There is also a work train down by New Yard, I couldn't tell what was there though because it was too dark - but it was lit up. Does NS care if you take pictures from the cement plant?
