Mostly you'll hear the Amtrak MRS (Springfield) line dispatcher communicating with both freight and passenger trains (Connecticut Southern, Amtrak, CT Rail and PanAm) as well as MofW employees and track inspectors between Hartford and Springfield. Other local freight operations (CSX's W. Springfield yard, CSOR on the Airport and Armory branches, CNZR in Bloomfield) can also be heard, along with CSX Boston line dispatcher transmissions around Springfield and the New England Central dispatcher in Palmer. Alpha tags are provided to assist in identifying what is being heard at any given moment; these are best viewed using a dedicated audio player such as iTunes, Winamp or Windows Media Player.
