The webcam is owned and supported by the Virginia Tech Foundation. In addition to its use by railfans (over 20,000 hits last month) it is used to market Hotel Roanoke to rail fans and to promote tourism to rail sites in Roanoke which is a portion of Hotel Roaonke's business plan.

The move and improvements were made in response to feedback from users.

Happened across this web address last night also for the web cam,

It plays in Windows Media Player and is full screen. Again, to whoever made the change, Thanks!

When did they make the much needed move of the Roanoke Rail cam to the top of the pedestrian walkway? Much better view and appears to be better streaming. Nice job Lads.
