We've updated the NS train symbols to match the new intermodal symbols effective today.
The HU team is getting the system ready for the upcoming NS intermodal train symbol changes on 8/22. We'll execute scripts on that day to update all the symbols in the system. Please note that you can submit train symbol changes to us via the mobile app. Head to "More" > "Train Symbols" and run a search. If the train symbol is not found then you'll be presented with the option add one.
With this information our team can review the change help build out the database. Note that you may see routing paths generated for trains. Our system regenerates these routing paths every night. If you see a routing path that is incorrect, please let us know via submitting a train symbol update. Note that we're expanding the routing functionality everyday to include more railroads but note this is still experimental as we're constantly tweaking the algorithms.
