  1. Metra and PTC

    I think going forward the mechanical problem will be used more. Once I left the station and HEP dies and train stop. The fix the issue and go on. Then the other day we are pulling up to lake bluff and lights cut off for a second.

    Sorry up north

    On the UP line going north past clyborn looks the a new track is almost complete across the river bridge. It looks like track would go as far as near the next bridge. My question is will this extended further or is this only a siding? It just appears if this was part of the main line that it would be a bottle neck due to angle of track.
  11. CTA Rail Service Alerts

    Any one know what happened yesterday in the loop with all the reroutes? Pink line was no where to be found, red line was above ground, and to go from washington/wabash to clinton on a harlem train took 25 minutes. It was chaos yesterday, the conductor was fighting back with people over the PA system.

  13. From what I have heard, the PTC system has to be reprogrammed with how many cars/locomotives and the route/line/run itself. I believe it only takes 5-10 minutes to program it.
  14. I think he was referring to the additional time to reprogram the PTC computer has made the schedules off.
