Today, the service has nearly 10 million YouTube views per month…and is making a major impact on its viewers and communities. Get a behind-the-scenes look at Virtual Railfan and free message dating impact it's made on rail fans. She was wrong. Today, Cyr is co-owner of a company that builds 3D locomotives and freight cars for a popular train simulator. But he is probably best known for being one of the founders of Virtual Railfana hugely popular streaming site and Eanta channel that allows rail fans to watch trains live from the comfort of their own homes.
In the town of Folkston, Georgia, a covered platform sits across from a set of railroad tracks.
It was on this platform that the idea for Virtual Railfan was born. Room sexs essex vermont two had been working together on the train simulator business from Florida and Louisiana respectively and, as fellow rail fans, had met up several times in Folkston to catch up in person and watch trains. And then there was the matter of where to put the camera. I'm thinking obviously Folkston is where we like to watch trains, so let's approach the Aanta and see what they say.
Cyr pitched the idea to the City of Folkston. The way he saw it, it was a great promotion for the City — one that would ultimately bring more rail fans to town, which would generate revenue for local hotels, restaurants and more. It was a no.
Dixie McGurn was the former Mayor of Folkston. She offered to let Cyr and Cornell mount a camera on the roof of her shop, which had a clear view of the railroad tracks.
And nude livermore colorado chat girls they had to figure out how to stream the footage. Fortunately, they had a friend who owned a hosting company and could help. Fast forward to late Cyr got a call from a man named Mike Tippins. He was one of the original viewers of the Folkston cam, and he had a chzt Would Cyr and Cornell want to sell the business?
The pair had always intended to expand Virtual Railfan to make a network of train cameras. Tippins shared the vision of creating a network, and he was ready to buy. Cyr told him it had been a money-losing venture so far.
He was in. Tippins is now the Vice President and Treasurer. With a new partner on board, the team upgraded the Folkston camera ve standardized the equipment to be used for future sites.
And, as a commercial airline pilot, Tippins had the time and opportunity to scout new sites. It was a win.
Internet access can be expensive and difficult to establish. Take one site in Norwalk, Connecticut. A Virtual Railfan viewer suggested they put a camera on satna old switch tower. They learned a woman in the apartment building next door to the tower had internet, and she was willing to share. The team forged on, and today it offers stunning views of trains. Today, Virtual Railfan cameras have nearly 10 million viewers per month.
And we're now sitting at almostsubscribers.
In total, Virtual Fred has cameras watching 22 different railro in 50 locations across 25 states and 4 countries. More locations are being added all the time. Kathy Abbott, who started as a chatting with naked girls and is now Operations Manager for Virtual Railfan, said the cams offer entertainment for rail fans of all types — those who love locomotives, those who count cars, or those who love seeing the different reporting marks.
But, she found watching the cameras interesting and especially loved the chat rooms. For her, it was social. People really bond, and they look for each other every day.
For instance, Ashland has an annual Train Day, and about a dozen chat rooms amelia island from the chat used it as cree excuse to meet up back in Last year, about people traveled to Ashland for Train Dayhaving become familiar with Ashland through Virtual Railfan cams. We've had so many of our rail fans who actually plan vacations to basically camera hop and visit their favorite locations.
Leroy, the local crossing guard who is charged with waving busses safely over the tracks, has become hugely popular with viewers. When the La Grange, Kentuckycam showed a railroad crew performing track work for days on end in pouring rain, viewers decided they needed a pick-me-up.
So they pooled their money and sent the crew pizza. One woman from England even donated a hundred dollars. Virtual Railfan footage has actually assisted local law enforcement with investigations. In one instance, some teenagers were trespassing at the Horseshoe Curve National Historic Landmark after hours. But that site in Altoona, Pennsylvania, has a rail camera — and unbeknownst to the teens, about rail fans were watching.
When viewers saw them begin to vandalize the site, many called In fact, so many called that they overwhelmed the system, and the dispatch center in Altoona called Cyr to ask him to call off viewers. Teen dating chat the time the police arrived, the teens were gone.
Cyr shared it with police, who in turn shared it with a local news channel.
Just 25 minutes after it was broadcast, the teens turned themselves in. Had the gentleman called just seconds later, it ffee have been a tragic outcome for the couple. And then there are the personal impacts of Virtual Railfan. The site obviously offers rail fans an frde source of entertainment, allowing them to watch trains all over the country…and in other countries, too.
But it also allows homebound rail fans to continue enjoying their hobby.
The team has received letters from parents with children on the autism spectrum sharing how much joy Virtual Railfan brings their. And it gives people something to look forward to. For instance, one chat room moderator who was embarking on a road trip offered to clean Virtual Rail Facebook sex chat cameras along his route. Cyr offered to pay for his gas and hotel room, but he declined.
His wife had passed away recently and Virtual Railfan was a source of hope. What started as a passion project has resulted in a community of fellow rail fans and a source of sant and joy for viewers.
Between the viewers and the staff and all the people saanta volunteer for us, I don't think you could go out and handpick a better group of people. It's some of the best people I've ever worked with in my lifetime.
