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.
"When [NARP] comes to Washington, you help embolden us in our efforts to continue the progress for passenger rail. And not just on the Northeast Corridor. All over America! High-speed rail, passenger rail is coming to America, thanks to a lot of your efforts! We’re partners in this. ... You are the ones that are going to make this happen. Do not be dissuaded by the naysayers. There are thousands of people all over America who are for passenger rail and you represent the best of what America is about!"
