I dropped in new functionality that will now attempt to normalize the train numbers for known train symbols with in our database.
If you entered "Amtrak 5" during the report you may notice the system will automatically change it to "AMTK 5 - California Zephyr". Ultimate goal with this; is to send future notifications down the line of a inbound locomotive to your area.
We'll be watching this functionality closely over the next couple weeks.

When uploading images we'll perform image recognition and attempt to automatically identify the locomotive you took a picture of and set the locomotive code for you.

Renamed the "ATSF Paint" units to the logic below
Warbonnets with BNSF on side will get “BNSF Warbonnet”
Warbonnets with ATSF on side will get “ATSF Warbonnet”
Bluebonnets previous had the description "ATSF Paint" now have "ATSF Bluebonnet"

Removed the word "Patched" from the locomotive descriptions. We found this to be confusing for many users. We've replaced the word "Patched" with the word "Paint". Thus instead of "ATSF Patched" it will not be "ATSF Paint".
Note that we'll be getting more detailed in the descriptions but it will take some time so hang with us. Today was the first step of a cleanup effort.
On the mobile web version, when reporting a locomotive we updated the locomotive selector to the new modals. While doing that maintenance we noticed the locomotive's where sorting by code and not number which may have looked odd. This has been resolved.
Added a few tweaks to reporting validations.

You may notice a small difference in look-n-feel of the "popups" (aka modals) that display on the site. Our previous library was causing performance issues and was also limiting our ability to add new functionality. Any technical issues please contact us at the link on the bottom of the web site.
Fixed the report sorting on the detail pages for locomotives.
Reactivated UP6248 (SP Patched) - Thanks M. Wright.
Fixed a small issue on the locomotive's report history page where the reporting frequency graph was displaying incorrectly.
