"METRO NORTH TRAIN TIME!"

Post by RAY » Wed Oct 23, 2013 6:13 am

I was more than a little surprised this AM when I discovered "Metro North Train Time!" indicates both arrival time and station stops not only for their own trains, but also for Amtrak trains utilizing Metro North stations.

Go look at New Haven and you see Shoreline East on it too!
Change at Bridgeport for service to Derby-Shelton, Ansonia, Seymour, Beacon Falls, Naugatuck and Waterbury

NJTransit's DepartureVision also shows Amtrak departures (and SEPTA departures at Trenton), it's probably the way they have the systems set up...it feeds from the real train-dispatching system.

Now just imagine how crazy one huge departure board at NYP would be...
