Train Standby Channel161.415
This is used for train-to-train and train-to-ground communication for road trains, on all subdivisions. Hotbox detectors also broadcast on this channel. Highly recommended.
RTC ChannelsThese are used by the Rail Traffic Controller to talk to train crews and maintenance crews. Often they can give useful information about approaching trains or trains entering CTC territory.

This is used for CEMR's train-to-train and train-to-ground communication for road trains. Highly recommended. This is used for the Central Manitoba Railway's Carman and Pine Falls subdivisions.
