Nice & lol on the video

 

Why is the (G) using only 4 cars?

 

This photo might be from yesterday. Today it wouldn't be using 4 cars.

 

EDIT: It couldn't be from today or yesterday. The (G) was off QB last week.

About the horn: IMHO people shouldnt be bitching about cops asking to put the cameras away. Cops are only trying to protect us, so if they ask you to put it away, then just PUT IT AWAY and dont ***** about it online

Is a blast of horn like that code for calling the cops, or did I miss something?

____ = Long blast of the horn

o = Short blast of the horn

SOUND - INDICATION

____ Apply brakes immediately —- STOP

____ ____ Sounded when passing caution lights or flags to

warn personnel of the approach of a train.

o o An answer to any signal.

o o o Road Car Inspector to respond to the train.

___o Signal Maintainer to respond to the train.

___o___o Train Crew needs (Police) Assistance.

o o o o Train request to Tower Operator or handswitcher

for route or signal.

Succession of Short Sounds A warning to persons on or near the trackway

or when a train is operating against the normal

direction of traffic, when a train is making

an irregular move, or bypassing stations when

entering or leaving.

Who's bitching about it online?

 

If he was calling for assistance why did he leave right after he blasted the horn?

 

how do I know? My only guess is that he noticed there were no cops at that stop and left.

He probably took that photo late Friday night during transition time: the 4 car pieces already on the line pre GO had to go to Continental to be added up to make 8 car trains. Additional cars needed would come from R/V lay ups.

 

Monday morning, around 4 AM, the G will be extended to Continental, so trains can be cut down to 4x4. Un-needed cars will become R/V AM put-ins.
