The BNSF emulator is a remote access tool for employees of BNSF, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. The emulator requires java to run which can be frustrating for mobile users since both iOS and Android don’t support Java. However with our app, because you’re browsing from your AlwaysOnPC virtual computer hosted on our cloud, you can browse to Flash and Java based websites.
There does seem to be several ways to browse to the emulator and not all of them seem work from our app. The one that a lot of people use is either www.bnsf.com/emu or http://www2.bnsf.com:8200 with mixed results, but the link that seems to work for most people is http://www2.bnsf.com:8200/jretest.html?lang=en_US&parms=def3270,enhanced,default,,&WCP_USER=&action=switch.html, which takes you directly to the emulator.
