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.
"We would not be in the position we’re in if it weren’t for the advocacy of so many of you, over a long period of time, who have believed in passenger rail, and believe that passenger rail should really be a part of America’s intermodal transportation system."
