ATCS availability in SF Bay Area and Northern California
Author: ShoreLineRoute

Hi all,

I've been under the impression that BNSF and UP don't use ATCS in the SF Bay Area and Northern California.  Has this changed recently, and if so, for which main lines is this information accessible to railfans?  I suspect that the coverage map in the ATCS Monitor website might not be up to date.

Thanks in advance!

UP uses ATCS on its Bay area lines that are CTC (Coast sub between Elmhurst & Newak is TWC as are some areas South of Gilroy) . I believe BNSF does as well but I am not as familiar with their lines. Caltrain does as well. Some areas have spotty coverage - need more reciever sites!

I run a server covering UP in the northern most part of California (roughly Marysville north to Weed). There is a Roseville server that covers Sacramento, Roseville, Donner and more. PM me if you'd like more details.
