FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q:
What does "Content Unavailable" mean with Trains' live streaming video?
A: In short, it means the streaming video camera is not connected to our company's servers and there is no video to show. This could be because of weather, or interference from nearby buildings or high-tension power lines that prevent the camera from sending a good signal. Sometimes we also have to move to a new location and that requires us to turn off the equipment, drive in the car, and re-assemble the gear elsewhere.

Q: Why am I asked to download the "Hook" mobile app to view your video?
A: To view the video stream on Android-based mobile devices, our streaming service Ooyala uses a free mobile app. It is available through the regular Google Play store on your mobile device.
