Anyone else getting a "Problem with arrival city name" error? It takes NYP and AXP and Oct 30 fine on the form, but when I hit "find trains", error.

This will also be my first Autumn Express. Coming up from down south on the Meteor, returning the same. May have to buy a railroad.net hat so you all can recognize me. Either that, or go incognito in case I have any stalkers or dissatisfied members wanting to complain about moderation LOL.
