Does CSX still use PBX systems or am I wasting my time having them programmed?

Thanks

I saw the old CNW PBX used once... basically the engineer just wanted to demonstrate how old he was...

Just returned from a trip on Amtrak, Minneapolis-Spokane-Minneapolis and I can tell you the BNSF people (both T&E and MofW) use their PBX a lot.

PBX system on CSX

The system is being turned back up in areas now that cell phones are banned. The hardware was in place but the timetable was not updated. I believe that anything listed in the TT must be operational.

A year ago this month I followed a BNSF line through Nebraska and Wyoming. Plenty of chatter and lots of it was useful as far as knowing where trains were at.

Private Branch Exchange. Telephone call over radio. For Railroad, mostly to the Dispatcher at the yard.
