Oh, I thought you were talking about calling, not sending text messages. Glad you got what you were looking for.

Well, Tumbleweed did say "cell phone" and "keypad" ...

 

I used 41411 a lot going to/from last Gathering. I put station codes on the pocket time table. It was real interesting to compare Amtrak's predictions with actual arrival times, and also to watch how predicted times changed during the trips. It was also handy when I wanted to know where we were and the GPS was out of juice (or in the sleeper charging).

 

So thanks very much for writing the script for us, MisterToad!

Yes that is very true. But many times while at the station railfaning, I use my cellphone to check the train status - and use the keypad to call 1-800-USA-RAIL!rolleyes.gif
