From the Parkville, MO Youtube page description:

Parkville is located on the BNSF St. Joseph’s sub, running from Murray Yard, Missouri to Lincoln, Nebraska.  The crossing is MP 9.660, and TT track speed is 45 mph. This is not a quiet Zone. You can expect to see 45 trains a day. There are no Amtraks on this line, and no radio feed available. 

From the Princeton, IN Youtube page:


The VRF cameras are hosted by the Gibson County Visitors and Tourism Bureau. There are 2 lines here. The closer track is CSX, specifically the CE&D Subdivision (of their Nashville Division), which was formerly the Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad (C&EI).  The farther track is Norfolk Southern (NS), specifically the Southern East District (of their Illinois Division), which was formerly the Southern Railway (SOU or SR) line between St. Louis and Louisville.
Less than a mile south of here, the NS line crosses the CSX at a diamond as it swings to the east towards Louisville.
There is also a radio feed available for the CE&D Sub to the north (also provides their Illinois Sub): https://www.broadcastify.com/listen/f...
CE&D Sub on AAR channels 94 & 84 (161.520 & 161.370) and Illinois Sub on AAR channels 8 & 58 (160.980 & 160.230)
There are ATCS layouts for both lines, but only "legacy" for CSX (as it's no longer on radio code line) and no server coverage for NS, i.e., no monitoring available for either.
There are no Amtrak passenger trains here.
There’s no schedule for freight trains, but some of our more knowledgeable members will provide real-time information when it’s available. Please refrain from asking.
