The COVID 19 Coronavirus crisis will present some challenges to Railcam UK. We plan to continue running the website as normal, but with the some restrictions.
The following will be halted until the crisis has passed and Government advice makes such activities possible again :
- Development of new camera sites – with over a dozen sites in various stages of development, this is particularly disappointing.
- Upgrades to cameras
- Repairs to existing cameras. This means that if cameras go off-line, they may stay that way for a prolonged period.
- The same applies to our diagrams and data services.
With so many people working from home and/or self-isolating, we expect that certain parts of the Internet infrastructure, as well as our own systems, may come under unprecedented strain. It’s possible that this may affect our ability to stream everything at the same quality as normal.
These are exceptional circumstances and we hope that you’ll bear with us if things don’t run as smoothly as usual. In the meantime, we hope that Railcam will provide a welcome diversion, as so many of us find ourselves having to stay at home.
No guarantees can be made, but we will do our level best to keep it all running.
We hope that our Railcam family all stay safe and well through this difficult time.
