Ratings and Reviews
Helpful, but has a Major issue
This wonderful app gives an exact location of all Heritage units out there, and it is very useful. I recorded UP 1996 and 1988 using this app. But after I recorded it, I went to report both locomotives and a error message said "Your account is suspended from reporting". I had made my account two days prior and I have no idea how to go around that. I would like to report locomotives for other users. But I don't know how or why my account was "suspended" from reporting.
Admin adds what he wants to
I would give it no stars if I could. I have repeatedly tried to get the Pan Am OCS F units added for years along with the ATSF and BNSF H1 painted units Central Maine and Quebec has, and a exConrail unit and several patched up units New Brunswick Southern owns added for almost 4 years now. The admin threatened to ban me because he didn’t deem the units as “worthy” enough. The app only caters to Class 1 Railfans, while neglecting the class 2 and class 3 crowd. I don’t recommend, plus they try to push the overpriced memberships, to the point that it would be easier to use websites like railsightings to report stuff. HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP! It has potential, but the admin needs to listen to suggestions for units. It’s not worth it for me to have the app for the one or two trips out of Maine I do a year, since almost none of the units on the website even make it into New Hampshire.
Time zone error
I was trying to put in that I spotted a soo line loco and it kept saying that it had a timezone error and I could not report it I really like this app and would like to see it become bigger that what it is but if I keep getting an error like this you can't use the app sufficiently
