Affective immediately, all Puget Sound Railroad Radio.net audio streams will be discontinued. After 10 years of operations, we have decided to close down streaming, as we just don’t have the time and energy to continue these audio sources for the rail fan community. With many changes coming to rail communications in Washington state, much work and running around the state would have to be done to keep up. This will afford me more time to concentrate on my state wide amateur radio repeater system and its upcoming projects.

Thanks to my listeners over the years and their support. Also a special thanks goes to my commercial and private hosts. Without their support, I wouldn’t have been able to provide these locations for these many years.

Thanks for all the hours of listening, Pete! Really bummed about this, but I also understand. Hopefully someone with your energy and know-how can fill the huge void left once PSRRR goes down. Thanks again!

Beaver,

This decision is very difficult for me to make both from a personal hobby standpoint and financially. Have so much both invested into these operations, people don't understand how much it really takes for such a wide footprint. Resent health issues have forced me to change my priorities and this is part of the fallout. At the same time, so much has to be changed and updated to stay current with the entire goings on, I just can’t stay ahead of it anymore. Many good things have come from having this stuff with contacts and working relationships with property owners that I can use in the future.

Pete, I can't tell you how many hours I've spent listening to your #1 stream, and it was a valuable tool in railfanning Stampede, and keeping up with what was going on over on the west side.

I hope your health issues will get sorted out in short order and that you can once again find time for all interesting things to enjoy. I can't think of another stream that had as tremendous coverage as #1 did.

Thanks again for countless hours of enjoyment, and hope to someday hear it back!

Agreed, thanks a lot Pete I use to listen to your Gold Bar stream and use to record your Wenatchee stream when I'd go rail fanning so I could incorporate some chatter into my videos.

Thanks for all the air time it was fun.

What is your malfunction?
Hopefully, someone could add those channels to RRR.net so we could continue listening or maybe someone could continue to carry the torch.

These streams sound like a security gap. We can't have terrorists listening in and probing for ways to use trains as weapons. Someone call KOMO.

Not really related to the topic, but I just happened to notice Iron Bender's avatar. Ignoring the copyright issues, here's an odd bit of trivia for you.

The engine in that photo isthe NP F9 7012A from the Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad. We did the filming in Montana, and I was there when they took that photo.

Hello Pete, If I'm ever up that way I'll give you a call on your repeater system.
I guess you have several linked?

Bob can you tell us more about the filming of the movie and the 7012A? I don't think it has ever been a topic on here but probably should have by now.
