The Spaulding Tower webcam faces East overlooking the station tracks and mainline. The Car Line/Barn 9 webcam faces North towards the Central Avenue Pavilion overlooking Yard 9 and the streetcar line. The Mainline webcam faces West overlooking Yard 2, the mainline and the station tracks. The Car Line Junction webcam is mainly used by the dispatcher to make sure the powered switch is clear before remotely operating it via CTC control board in Spaulding Tower. We have added a feed for that camera as well.
You have two frame rate settings to choose from, an 8 second refresh interval and a 2 second refresh interval. The 2 second refresh should only be used on broadband connections of 128kbps or faster. The 8 second interval appears to be reliable down to 28kbps. The default is 8s/f, to view the higher frame rate, click the 2s/f link on the top right of the webcam page.
