  • The Washington County Railroad and New York & Ogdensburg Railroad generally contact Rutland dispatch via cell phone, and not the repeater system. They do use the yard switching channels.
  • Both repeater frequencies are patched together and carry identical traffic from various sites around the state. Repeater inputs are used to link them together.
