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.
"On behalf of Amtrak’s onboard service staff, I want to thank the Rail Passengers Association for honoring their hard work with this award. The past couple years have indeed been difficult for Amtrak onboard service staff – coping with furloughs and job insecurity, adapting to changing protocols and services, not to mention the unfortunate events such as a tragic derailment and a fatal shooting. Nevertheless, our dedicated members at Amtrak have handled these hurdles with the care, attention and diligence for which they’re known. We thank Rail Passengers for their acknowledgement of our members’ hard work and, as always, look forward to seeing you on the rails."
