  • With the BNSF taking over the Montana Rail Link (MRL) effective Jan. 1st, 2024.  We're starting to move things around within the Heritage Units system to align.   Below are some quick bullet points.


    • All MRL subdivisions are now under BNSF.
    • We've updated the routing configuration for BNSF to utilize the MRL subdivisions.  If you see a train route that appears incorrect;  please submit a train update and let us know. 
    • Currently there are only two tracked MRL locomotives (MRL4404 & MRL4407) within the HU system.  These locomotives will still maintain the locomotive prefix of "MRL" until BNSF officially re-prefixes them to "BNSF" and any possible renumbering.


    Note... We do plan to track MRL painted locomotives as they'll likely migrate out onto the rest of the BNSF system. Please contact us at our link on the home page when you see these MRL units outside of the current MRL tracks.  We will request pictures/videos during these suggestions


    Happy New Years!

    Because of the numerous requests we've received within a brief period, we have decided to track this unit based on the request from the HU community. It's important to mention that this unit was recently subjected to vandalism and to our knowledge is not recognized as an official CSX Heritage Unit. We strongly disapprove of any actions taken by individuals to vandalize locomotives.

  • We've changed all the BNSF train symbols within the system to now include the dash delimiter between the train type indicator and the org/dst train station codes.  

    This will make it easier to quickly recognize the train symbols.  

    Note that when submitting new reports 

    If you don't include the dash delimiter; the server will automatically format the symbol into the correct format (assuming the symbols is within the system).

  • Majority of the CN train symbols and routing matrixes are built and configured in the system.  This means if you have the "inbound trains" feature you will start seeing them show up on your screens if the route of the train is inbound for your location.  But please note we're still working on the ETA precision for CN. 

      

    Special Note with CN train symbols


    CN shares train symbols with different regions of the railroad.  An example would be "CN L501" which has 8 variations  (please read the CN train symbol anatomy).  I've coded the system that when submitting a new report and you enter in the correct sub division and "CN L501"; the server will automatically assign the correct variant. 

    Quick example...


    Train "CN L501-61" - Origin (Flint, MI) to Dest (Battle Creek, MI)


    When submitting a report if you enter "CN L501" and select "CN Flint Subdivision" then the server will automatically assign "CN L501-61".

  • Inbound Train Feature

    Please note the new "Inbound Train" feature was released in version 3.26 which will attempt to provide a heads up on when a train is inbound to a configured radius around your device.  This is still flagged with a experimental flag and please read our FAQ on the site for more details.   Android 3.26 is already within the Google Play Store and Apple 3.26 version should be available next week. 

    Android Notifications (v3.26)

    Google is requiring application permission be granted to display notifications within the app if you're phone is running Google OS 13 (Tiramisu) or higher.  With the recent app release; the HU app wasn't requesting permission and thus notifications are not displaying. 

    A new version is queued up within the Google Play Store (3.27) which will resolve this issue and should be available shortly.

    As a side now; with all the new functionality that we’re throwing into the system (milepost, routing, eta calculations, etc…).  We’ll be looking to upgrade our servers within the next few months.

  • Added - CSXT1982 - Seaboard System
  • We've made a tweak to the system that when a web camera is submitted and there is multiple camera operators watching the same lines at the same location (Fostoria, OH); we will normalize the location name within the report.    

    Example... A report use to show as "Fostoria, OH (Railstream)" or "Fostoria, OH (VRF)" will now be recorded as "Fostoria, OH".  This resolves an issue where with how reports displayed within the system.   

    This will take affect going forward and note this will only occur in special locations like Fostoria, OH and a couple others.

  • Hi everyone,

    We've published our train symbol database online and it can be found at our web site on the top navigation "Train Symbols".  This is a database that is community driven for the past couple years but was only viewable on the mobile app. 

    Couple quick notes...

    • All active railroads 'currently' configured in our system our viewable (many small/medium railroads may not have symbols but are available for train symbol additions).

      If you wish to contribute a train symbol for a railroad not listed; please contact me so I can add the railroad. 

    • Train Routing...  This is a very complex beast that I've custom built and configured over the past 3 years (I can't express the amount of endless nights and work that has gone into this creating this feature... AND the next new feature release will build upon it... STAY TUNED). 

      Note that currently the majority of the Class I railroads are configured with the exception of the Canadian National (my desire is to finish it next month).   

      If you see a route that is incorrect; please let us know by hitting the "Submit a change..." button on an individual train.

  • Hello Everyone,

    I've released the web cam reporting back to the web browser. Note that you must have the Heritage Units application 3.22+ installed on a phone/tablet to pair your browser to your device (both Android and iOS versions released today). 

    I've tried to make it as easy as possible for folks to report in the new UI for webcams.  I've also started to build in maps for each camera to assist with the orientation of the web cameras to actual railroad lines and will provide individualized instructions for certain web cams to help during the report.  

    As always... constructive and/or positive feedback is always welcomed as it keeps me motivated knowing that I'm helping railfans out. You can reach out to me at the contact links at the bottom of the web site or within the application (More > Profile).   Any bugs or issues please let me know... I'm human and mistakes do happen but I'm quick to fix if confirmed to be an issue.

    Happy railfanning!

  • I'm making a few changes to web cam reporting...  

    In mobile app version 3.22; you will no longer need to adjust for the timezone.  We ask that you enter the exact time that matches the camera's timestamp (don't worry... we'll handle the timezone stuff).  The 3.22 app version should be available within the Apple/Google Play stores within the next few days...

    Coming very soon... 

    We're going to start allowing web cam reports to be submitted via web browser again.   We know that most folks watching web cams are sitting near a computer and this will make it easier to report.   

    Note you'll still be required to register/install the mobile app for security reasons but I'll have more details on this very soon...

    I've fixed the root cause of the bug and updated a majority of the notification rules within the system.  Thus if you're one of the persons within this group, you'll start receiving notifications again going forward.

  • As many of you know; the Canadian Pacific and Kansas City Southern merger is effective today creating CPKC railroad.  We're actively merging the two railroads together within the HU system today and below are the current changes.  


    • Created CPKC Railroad
    • Migrated all CP/KCS Divisions & sub divisions into the CPKC railroad
    • Moved all tracked locomotives under the CPKC railroad but they will retain their current reporting marks (KCSM, KCS, CP, etc...) until they are officially changed.
    • Changed the CP train symbol prefixes to CPKC.  Note that we're hearing that the KCS symbols will be abolished once the current trains running under them arrive at their destination and they will be sticking with CP train symbols.  Thus will be removing KCS symbols from the HU system within 48 hrs. 
    • Routing engine will also update later this evening to adjust for the new train symbols. 


    If you have any knowledge of any division/subdivision changes or have a recent train symbol listing; please reach out to me via the contact page so we can get everything sync'd up as fast as possible.
