    Planning ahead ... there is a rail cam in Roanoke, but not sure where it covers ... or for that matter what and where NS-999 will be doing stuff

    http://bit.ly/1sUHybt

    which at the moment leads to
    http://bit.ly/TI4vgH

    which has a plugin issue for my default/speedy setup, so if some of you check it out, let me know what you're seeing. (have other options, but requires a reboot at the moment)

    offered on the Hotel Roanoke web site:

    An NS facility is just a little east of the Hotel, though I'm not positive that's where NS-999 is going

    Twitter followup to one of my NS-999 Questions:

    http://bit.ly/1tAGCeo

    Q: 999 being tested via remote control or "in person?" Couldn't tell in the video

    A: they tell me 999 leaves for Roanoke in a month. Once that happens, I'll be of no use.

    A2: at least 2 of 3 times it was MUed to the other two yard units.
    (via http://bit.ly/1tAGCeq ....
    not exactly sure why it didn't all go to one place)

    Perhaps I missed it, but here's the link to the Facebook (not twitter for some reason) post:

    It also features the 8 second video without being in a "list" like the twitter posting lead you to

    I followed up regarding NS-999

    while it died on 10/15 and we still don't know why, note that on 10/16

    "It also worked 1st and 2nd trick 10/16"

    checking back for a definition of "trick" and hoping for a treat in response

    EDIT: looks like I was composing as metroneanderthal was posting just above ...

    Looks like NS has more biz than they can handle lately ...
    and the natives are getting restless ...

    might this mean they're even LESS interested/able to deal with "experiments" (if that's even possible)?

    Amtrak woes may point to bigger rail service problems

    http://bit.ly/1C1RaC9

    "Dave Pidgeon, a spokesman for Norfolk Southern, said the railroad was experiencing traffic volumes it hadn’t seen since the 2008 recession. Pidgeon said the railroad is in “a strong hiring phase” and is investing in new infrastructure and capacity east of Chicago.

    “While that’s a good sign for jobs and the economy,” he said, “it comes with staffing and capacity challenges.”

    Federal lawmakers and regulators are expressing concern about the congestion as it’s delaying freight shipments as well, notably for auto manufacturers, grain producers, coal-reliant electric utilities and even UPS.

    ...

    A long, severe winter made things even worse. The nation’s leading rail hub, Chicago, became a black hole that swallowed entire trains."

    Or as the author tweeted

    "Would you like some battery storage with that EV charger? http://bit.ly/1rjkNbG … via @greentechmedia"

    And Lordy, if her brains come close to her beauty, I expect to see her on my TV one of these days before long ... MSNBC, CNBC, Bloomberg ... whatever ...

    NRG Teams Up With Green Charge Networks to Offer Battery Storage With EV Chargers

    http://bit.ly/1rjkNbG

    Sneaky! Two birds ... one "stone."

    Those Green Charge guys are making it happen ...

    "The battery storage is not hooked up to the EV chargers, however. Rather, it’s attached to the building load. The two appliances exist in parallel and join up at the host’s electrical panel."

    ITKG Breaks Out To 52-Week High And Tells The Market There's More On The Way

    http://seekingalpha.co...

    "I last wrote about Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB:ITKG) on May 1st when the stock was trading at .29, near a 52-week low and I took plenty of time in pointing out 16 years of utter failure before applauding the relatively new CEO, Doug Bathauer, for what clearly appeared to be an entire revamping of a company with plenty of promise, but no direction.

    Five short months later and with little sleep for a CEO that works ridiculous, around the clock hours, Bathauer has proven to long-time frustrated shareholders that their dream is quickly becoming a reality. He's now signaling to the rest of the investment community that they should take immediate notice of Integral's current rapid progress in commercializing Electriplast, the company's flagship product and patented creation."

    Parker Hannifin gaining traction with RunWise HD hydraulic hybrid; developing CNG-based HD system, next-gen MD system

    9 October 2014

    http://bit.ly/1v6Ruk8

    If you follow some of the links, this story goes back to 2006 (at least)

    "Parker Hannifin is seeing growing acceptance in the market for its RunWise heavy-duty hydraulic series hybrid system (earlier post), currently only applied in Autocar refuse trucks. After the introduction of pilot units in 2010, Parker is now close to the 100-unit mark with the RunWise system, with 84 of those in the North American market, and another 70 being built or on order, said Mark McGrew, RunWise sales manager. “Things are continuing to press forward in a very good way,” he added. “Within the last 6-12 months, we’ve seen tremendous traction.”

    In addition to seeking more heavy-duty applications for the RunWise hybrid system—such as transit—McGrew said that the company is working on a new generation of the product that should launch in 2016 for Class 4-6 delivery trucks—e.g., FedEx, UPS, etc. (Earlier post.) Further, Parker Hannifin has paired a RunWise transmission with a CNG engine in the series hybrid powertrain as a one-off to test the waters for such a combination, McGrew said."

    >IIN ... Altoonaworks should not be confused with "official NSC"

    any more than some Apple "fan-boy" web site should be compared to "official Apple"

    so to characterize it as "NSC being so public about moving the "Greenie" into the field"

    isn't at all the way I would characterize it ...

    The NS-999 Facebook posting

    http://on.fb.me/1BFjieb

    had an interesting comment/claim (unverified)

    " I've heard - 16 hours of charging for 8 hrs of run time."

    Will be interesting to see if that's true, and what variables play into that which might be experimented with ... not to mention the cost to recharge.
