Choose the display type:
Choose the time format:
Show "Boarding" at the initial station?
Choose the column format (Solari display type only)
Short - Scheduled Time, Number, Description, Destination, Status
Long - Same as short but additionally, Origin and Revised Time
Flipping Action (Solari display type only)
Faster - For those who are in a hurry.
Use your browser's "Control +" and "Control -" keys to scale the size of the display up or down.
Use full screen.
The display will update automatically every few minutes.

Do not do a manual "refresh" on your own because that will effectively disable the automatic refresh.
If you want to create a bookmark

where xxx is the 3-character code for the station you are interested in.
If the motion of the "split-flaps" appears slow or choppy, most likely your computer is either slow
or too busy doing other things. Try a faster browser, such as Chrome. There is also an option to speed up
the flipping action. Finally, there is also a static (non-flipping) option as well.
For a train which is "Overdue" (meaning that the latest expected time report has not been posted), the
Solari board will alternate between showing the word "Overdue" and the last report that had been
given for that train.
Supported Browsers: Firefox, Chrome, Safari.
