Default CSX computers down - dispatcher desks in chaos

I dont know if this is system wide or not, but all the Jacksonville dispatcher desks (Jax Division) computers are down, no track warrants, no TC, no switches can be lined, no trains moving, crews on the law all over the place in the middle of nowhere. Going on 3 hours now.

If you have a scanner handy, listen in, some of it's funny.

Well I guess they are glad they broke up the dispatching center right now...

Train crews are pissed because they cant move, went on the law, but cant leave their train (go home/off duty) until they give up their EC1's, which they cant do because the computers are down, so they just have to sit.

Just heard on the radio it's system wide...

Another interesting tidbit I just heard, crews cant get swing lights out of yards to double their train when making them up

Still down on some parts of the system, dispatchers are moving trains now putting switches in hand throw and talking them past signals

Huntington East has been restored. I believe the email I read said computers were up and running at 1:40 am this morning on both the Huntington East & West Divisions. Without a doubt, certainly an interesting series of events.
