The idea is one can choose to follow a user on the site and be informed of new posts, news, uploads and contributions like photo comp etc.
Once the user has done something on the site you get the pop-up notification with the link.
When looking through the locomotive database would be useful to have the location of the locomotive displayed as a part of the data.
For example - Inland Rail should almost have its own forum parallel to the NSW/VIC ones etc. All items related to IR go in there making it easier to find historic conversations etc, perhaps preventing new threads asking old questions.
Others would include
- Murray Basin
- New long distance Victorian trains
- Ballarat line upgrades
- Other geographies of rail (eg South West Queensland, Townsville line)
- Sydney Metro Northwest
There would be many others that other posters could suggest.
The only thing might be were one thread might cover 2 topics with might need some more thinking.
The current forums would remain as is as there needs to be places to discuss grain harvest, sightings etc.
In this idea instead of users posting service failures and updates or twitter links for comment we have a system which reads the twitter feed and when an update comes through it is automatically posted to the forum thread.
The same could be done for Sydney Trains and also for Queensland.
Not sure if available for V/Line or Countrylink?
Ever Partially agreed with some one in the forums? You should get the idea
An API to allow content providers to insert marketing information onto the site where they are billed for the usage and we provide a report on views. need to build a list of prices and the API should be available to all users who register. Payment of the usage should be via PAYPAL merchant interface.
The application has been talked about recently on RP but I think it also needs to do:
. Location of trains near by location
. location of other Railpage users in the locastion (nearby)
. Add a location you are currently at which adds to the locations system
. take a photo and send this to the site
. take a video and send this to the rp site
. video and photos from your location can be searched.
. you can see other photos and video from the location you are at and who took them
. open up a real time message service between users on the app.
There is now a lot of talk about chatbot and facebook messenger. I would like to see a chatbot on the facebook page http://www.facebook.com/railpage where questions and info can be got.
Where is x48?
location is provided.
What train is X48 on today?
that do you think?
A new railcam should be added into McDougall St in Windsor Ontario. At this road, we see the CP Windsor Subdivison merge with CP's entry to the Windsor Yard. It also features a Diamond with the Essex Terminal railway, where local freights run daily back and forth over the CP.
On average, McDougall St sees about 20-25 trains a day. Though 5 years ago it would have ranged anywhere from 35-45. Maybe 50. Yes, the amount of trains currently running is slim compared to what it was.. But we must keep in mind that Canadian Pacific just came out of a massive cut down with Hunter Harrison to get CP back on their feet. Now that CP's profits are more stable, it is safe to say that traffic on the line will only raise back up.
McDougall St sees a great quantity of CP trains, good amount of Essex Terminal Railway (ETR) action, the odd CSX unit grain train, and a CN Local reroute from time to time. Of course, these are the trains most likely to see, as there are many more unpredictable moves that could happen at anytime.
Seeing McDougall road in Windsor Ontario would be a dream come true for me, and I'm sure many others would agree on making this location a railcam.
