Re: Commuter Rail to Rhode Island Discussion

The most recent change to the board involved moving the forum from the "/forums" directory to the main directory, so removing "/forums" from the URL will correct the problem with broken forum links.

Re: New Program lets U redraw the MBTA Subway

I’ll use made-up examples here to show how spaces in file names are dealt with in Windows, Mac, and Linux.

In Windows, use double quotes:
“C:\Program Files\Example\Example File.file”

In Mac and Linux, use apostrophes (single quotes):
‘/usr/bin/Example File.file’

Re: Priority signaling

The UTA TRAX system uses detector loops either embedded in the pavement between the rails or attached to on top of railroad ties for signal pre-emption in the areas where trains run in dedicated ROW’s in the medians of streets.
