Well maybe not train traffic, but at least you watch the current track signals.
  ATCS_Capture.JPG  Yes, you can with Advanced Train Control Systems (ATCS) and here is what you have to do to get it working for you on your Windows 95/98/Me/NT4.0/XP/Vistra/7 (I have not tried it on Windows 8 yet).

ATCS works off of a scanner radio or via the Internet depending upon if there are radios connected to the internet are in the area of the subdivision that you are wanting to watch.

Be able to access the administrator account on your computer
Be a member of the ATCS Monitor Yahoo! Group
Download the files from the Files Area (Members Only!)

Once you are a member of the ATCS Monitor Group and have installed the application and your layout file(s), you should be good to go!

I would download both the ATCSMon410.exe as well as the ATCSMon426beta.exe.
Install the 410 first and then the 426beta next.

The next step is to install the Monitor Kit for the area that you want to monitor.
Be sure to review the Notes for that Monitor Kit.  It will contain important information that you may need to change within ATCS Monitor application in order to get it to work, i.e. ATCS Monitor version, Server address, etc.  For Example the UP Auston Sub requires version 426 and adding a server address and a port.  Without those updates, it will not work.
