    Hi from South Louisiana

    There has been some changes since I posted this. BNSF Lafayette Subdivision is still my favorite line, but my second favorite line is now the Kansas City Southern New Orleans Subdivision. Lately I have very much fascination with that said line. Also, my scanners I use for foaming have...

    Railroad Company Issue Industrial Flashlights

    I've been a flashlight collector most of my life, but I am giving up on it. Well, Except for the collecting of railroad flashlights. I will still collect models that are used (and have been used in the past) by train crews, signal and track maintenance workers and even railroad police...

    Louisiana Railroad Yard [and Mainline] Frequencies

    I am trying to compile a list of the yard and mainline frequencies for all Class 1 lines in Louisiana. I want to save it as a text file and keep it on my phone as a note, so I can have a frequency reference whenever I am foaming in the said state. I will also forward the information to...

    Uniden BC75XLT

    I will be getting the aforementioned scanner as soon as I get my gift card for turning on U-Verse. From what I have seen on Youtube, it looks to have loud and clear reception. My question is: How well does it preform when near WiFi equipment. And not just WiFi equipment, but...

    What Commodities Could Return To The Rails?

    The sugar (and molasses) factory in my town receives raw cane by truck (there are no longer any tracks where the cane is harvested.) It ships out molasses via rail but the raw sugar is shipped out by truck to be further refined at other sugar factories. They are building a depot in my town...

    Speaking of CTC...

    So...One time I was hanging out with my in-laws and my brother in law was talking about what CTC was. Keep in mind, he is NOT familiar with railroad operations. I immediately said it stands for centralized traffic control and is used with trains. He went on to say it stands for "cut throat...

    Understanding the Contents of a CTC Conversation

    Right, I am well familiar with TWC and how it works. The Lafayette Subdivision uses TWC and ABS. What would a CTC conversation sound like? I hardly ever get to hear one and when I do, it's not the whole thing since my scanner isn't up to par. It explains plenty that there is sometimes no...

    Understanding the Contents of a CTC Conversation

    I had tried it when I had a Windows computer but my scanner didn't pick up the 800 MHz band. Now I have two scanners that pick it up, but no computer with Windows. What about EOT monitor?

    Understanding the Contents of a CTC Conversation

    I have trouble understaning the contents of a conversation between dispatchers and train crews when they are using CTC. It is mainly because the only railroad within range of my scanners is the Union Pacific Livonia Subdivision and I hardly ever hear them. I don't know if this is a technical...

    Hi from Louisiana

    I am from Louisiana. The BNSF Lafayette Sub. Mainline passes through my town (albeit on the edge of town.) What part of the state are you in?

    Hi from South Louisiana

    Hello. I have had an account for this forum for a few months, but this is my first post (that I know of.) My two favorite lines are the BNSF Lafayette Subdivision (runs through my town) and the Union Pacific Livonia Subdivision. I do most of my foaming on the former. I don't go around the...
