Subject: [RailScan.net] Amtrak Interactive Train Locator Map

AMTRAK TEAMS WITH GOOGLE TO CREATE INTERACTIVE TRAIN LOCATOR MAP "New map provides visual of train status and arrival times, improves customer travel experience. The information provided in the map is aggregated data collected from GPS units on each operating train and other automated systems. The data is transmitted to Google’s cloud, and then transferred to the map."
