Camera Watching
Author: CTHA

I know there has been some changes for watching trains due to the issue of Neutrality but I was looking for suggestions to watch live traffic now  days with all the changes.

I have subscribed to Virtual since 2015.  They cover 9 places I frequent.  I'm really happy with their service.  I plan to hit more of their spots because I can count on seeing trains!

What do you mean by "Neutrality?"  The legalities are the same they have always been (and often ignored).  Unless you have permision, stay off of railroad company properrty and other private land.  Don't stand in the right of way at public crossings.

I believe the OP means watching Live RailCam Video on the Internet.

Try YouTube, they have a number of Live streaming cameras and Live RailCams. They encourage Live Cams with a pretty easy set up and no charge, some of the Cameras have advertising to generate funds for the LiveCam owners.

Outside of that, yea keep off the tracks kid.

He is referring to "Net Neutrality" laws. Has nothing to do with physical land or tracks.

Can't imagine what it has to do with watching live train cams.  Can someone explain?

For the most part the rules changed but the major carriers have not implemented any changes.
Here's the only connection that I know of, perhaps the OP has this in mind:
