Timetable Forum

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Altamont Press Timetable & Products : One Thread

One of many things I would hope to use this forum for is understanding what is the most important features of the timetable for you the user.

If you wish to submit ideas or suggestions, this is the place to do so. We may not be able to follow through on all suggestions and in some cases, it may take a couple of editions before we find the most workable way to produce it.

I welcome all visitors to this new forum on Altamont Press.

Stash, Two things I like about this format. I like what is called the Q&A format, where all the responses to the first item are on the same page, you can scroll down. There are the alerts, if you want an e-mail telling you there are responses to your orignial inquiry, you would know. Nice feature.

What I like best is the pages load up faster than the other board when using a dial-up service.

Some pages explaining how different forms of track signalling work, and what they are used for:

I also feel that that a note should be made n the schedule pages (particularly in the PNW and Calif. Timetables, stating that the "Push-Pull" system is used, so the train may appear to look as if it is moving backwards. This is helpful train-spotting information
