i tried to run my ATCS for use in New Castle district and it wont connect. I looked through the forum and found a old link that Indyspy use to use to upload current/updated files for New Castle but it seems to be a dead link. Is he hosting the files somewhere else or is there not a server for New Castle anymore??

Thanks...Joe

The host server is on AT&T.  Per Indyspy, either there is a cut cable somewhere or the modem is fried. 

Hopefully, they fix the issue quickly.  I'm not holding my breath, as last month AT&T left my house (and half of the town) internet-free for 9 days due to a cut F/O line a block from their office.  I no longer use them.

Try looking for it in Yahoo Groups ATCS group for the downloads.  I have one of the more recent MDBs but I think there is a receiver down in Muncie or something because the map never turns red when there is a train near the interlocking there.

EDIT: I just tried to connect and it won't.  So the server is indeed down.

I haven't checked it lately but is the CP229/Walnut St interlocking in Muncie properly showing when the movements are lined?

Looks like they re-named all the East x West x control points with unique names on the New Castle District in Indiana, but Ohio remains unchanged.  (or is that phase II?)

As a side note, did the renaming require a re-load of PTC, and could that contribute to the incident in Cincy?

The update has been posted,

This will be the primary way to get my files for the foreseeable future. Yahoo is deleting the email group within a month.

Indyspy, have you seen what is going on with Yahoo on the INRD Yahoo Site. My Question is will we be able to continue to Post our Sighting on it? Thought I would ask you here.
