Group Description

This group is for discussion and EDI(Electronic Data Interchange) of railroad train OS's (OS=On Sheet) on all railroads in the United States of American and its territories and possessions. This is primarily a group email list for another system that will generate and diseminate OS's of trains. This group is specifically for train/motive power/passenger/freight/caboose reporting/OS-es(OS's). Other general railroad discussion should be held on rail_EDI_Net on Yahoo. Format of messages is dynamic at this point, until a final format of EDI is decided upon, and then that format only will be allowed here for data interchange/database purposes.Where previously, telegraphers at stations and yards OS'ed trains (gave arrival and departure times of trains, with cars handled, number of passengers, etc) to the train dispatcher, seeing operators/telegraphers are gone and dispatchers no longer receive OS's from these people, the computer here will allow observations all over the United States to be reported.

No spamming, spimming(IMspam), flaming and conduct within Yahoo terms of service and guidelines is expected at all times.
