This module is an implementation of a right-track-agency used to add agency-specific configuration and functionality to various Right Track Projects.


This module provides the following agency-specific information:

  • Build Scripts for creating a Right Track Database for LIRR (using the right-track-db-build project)
  • The latest compiled Right Track Database for LIRR
  • The archived Right Track Databases for LIRR
  • Agency configuration properties to be used in various Right Track projects
  • The functions to generate a LIRR Station Feed for the right-track-server


Documentation can be found in the /doc/ directory of this repository or online at https://docs.righttrack.io/right-track-agency-lirr.

Additional documentation about the RightTrackAgency class can be found in the right-track-agency project and online at https://docs.righttrack.io/right-track-agency.


On require the module will return a new instance of the Long Island Rail Road implementation of a RightTrackAgency Class.

To get the agency configuration properties:

const LIRR = require('right-track-agency-lirr');

// Optionally load an additional configuration file

// Get the merged configuration
let config = LIRR.getConfig();

To get the real-time StationFeed for Jamaica Station:

const core = require('right-track-core');
const RightTrackDB = require('right-track-db-sqlite3');
const LIRR = require('right-track-agency-lirr');

// Set up the Right Track DB for LIRR
let db = new RightTrackDB(LIRR);

// Get the Stop for Jamaica (id='15') by querying the RightTrackDB
core.query.stops.getStop(db, '15', function(err, stop) {

  // Load the StationFeed for Jamaica
  LIRR.loadFeed(db, stop, function(err, feed) {

    // Do something with the feed
