According to the application, train 59 makes its first stop at Salisbury Mills!

In fact, none of the Port Jervis trains show Harriman as a stop!

Affirmative. Running Firefox 3.0.13 with no issues

Works well in Firefox for me. Only problem is that it requires manual refreshing.

-"Montclair Boonton" is cut off
-When it says click for stops, trains to outer terminals show the correct list of stops and terminal. However, terminal does not appear in the list of stops
-Trains to NYP or HOB show no intermediate stops, but also no terminal. "Train 3276 to will make the following station stops :"

EDIT: Apparently, no trains past the 0012 train to Hoboken are showing on the Lower Level page. There are 3 more in the schedule.

Uh, this has been announced as a beta for MOBILE-WEB DEVICES. So why would you expect it to support Chrome, FF, and IE? That it supports any of them is just a bonus for you.

Thanks for the positive outlook Terrapin...

Yep. Looks like the rest of the system is available to the public too. See http://dv.njtransit.com/mobile/tid-mobile.aspx?sid=PJ for example.

And Amtrak trains are available too: http://dv.njtransit.com/mobile/tid-mobile.aspx?sid=TR

Chrome is based on Webkit, which powers Safari, so it should work.

Black used to be only for extra or discharge only trains. While trains that went to NY were always the color of the line that they were on.
Because by time you're at Secaucus or Newark, what line the train is on is irrelevant if it's going to New York. So it makes it easier to spot your train on the board - westbounds are black, eastbounds are colored.

It worked in Chrome, except for the station links on the time & works in Safari now (w/ links). Albeit formatting is not driven for the CPU web browser. iSepta gets away with it by running it through an handheld emulator w/ ad's on the side.

These are some I found by guessing:

http://dv.njtransit.com/mobile/tid-mobile.aspx?sid=NP
http://dv.njtransit.com/mobile/tid-mobile.aspx?sid=HB

:P
Thanks.

I think you meant westbounds have colors and eastbounds are black ;)

Well looks like some kinks still need to be worked out as x313 is shown as a 8:05a departure out of NYP.

All AC line stations (minus Philly) need the color changed as you cant see the time because it's the same color as the "board."

Philadelphia has mostly all Amtrak trains listed, whoops.

PVL trains have "Single" in the track column, getting cut off and making it look like "Sir"
