It was... is a good feature, though can anyone recall the last time it was instituted? I do not recall the Amtrak nor SEPTA ACS-64 Cities Sprinters being highlighted, nor even the first run of UP #844 - so it's hit and miss - like many things about this site these days - seemingly, autopilot with sporadic visits by admin.

However - I am rather surprised your request was not accepted. As a well patronized long term member - it would've been an appropriate courtesy in my opinion.
