Second manning ftw!

Those are always a cracking watch, when someone up norf is trying to record Tornado and then a Pacer trundles past entirely ruining it all.Kevo00 wrote: My favourite clips are always the ones where a modern train obscures the spotter's view, or the one where a bloke gets surprised by a DMU just behind him.
As with any time you have multiple lookups, you have different codes for different purposes. It would be lovely if someone decided to create the 'definitive' code lookup, but sadly life doesn't work like that.Redirect Left wrote: ↑10 Jul 2019 02:17A while ago I bought a web domain, with a plan to make a website doing train things.
Skip to today, i am fighting with the systems, because for some reason Network Rail in the UK use lots of different codes to refer to what is the same place. Here's an example of what I mean, taken from the openraildata wiki
So I have to store all of these codes, and quickly refer to the storage every time the system throws up a reference. Think i'll use most of my CPU doing lots of database searching for this! Time to learn rapid methods of data storage and retrieval, i think!
Most of the systems I deal with from the Network Rail systems use STANOX. Thankfully it isn't hard to procure a total list of STANOX/TIPLOC codes. I'm currently learning train movement stuff which is a huge spam of info every time a unit passes through a location monitored by the TRUST system. Safe to say during the day, that sometimes means a lot of messages per second being pushed to my server in this style format. I'm still yet to decide what I want to do in the end, so i've ended up learning as much as I can about the data gets pushed publically if you're subscribed to these data sets on Network Rail / National Rail Enquries systems.
Oh wow, ace livery! I hope I see it whilst I'm around London and route to and around Brighton when I'm down in a few weekends time!
