Real TIme Train Location

Post by John 61 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 8:06 am

This was put up last week. http://www.mylirr.org" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Gives real time location of a train,# of cars, lateness & electric or diesel.
Works on PC but it is really made for your phone since it will see the users location and list the stations you are closest to. Anyone using this?

We found it to be very buggy.

The idea is great for railfans 'cause it tells you the type of equipment the train has, M3 or M7. Wish we had this ten or fifteen years ago. Now I can see the next couple of trains and if one is an M3, I can arrange to take that one. How cool is that! :-D

Now let's just hope it's accurate. LOL

I wish there was a way to show where all the M3's are and going that are out running on the system

Send that idea to LIRR. I might do the same.
As you leave the train, please step over the gap between the train and the platform
