    The current search function only searches for words in the service title. It would be a much more robust feature if it also looked at service descriptions.
    Being able to search for information within the descriptions also means we could be able to search for stuff like freight load type, via waypoints, and other special instructions and info that is provided in there.

    I loaded up LIRR with the want to run a timetable service that heads in or out of West Side Yard. It turns out that none of the services that start or end up in West Side Yard say this in their titles. Because it is not mentioned in the title, it means that using the search feature will not work. This means that the only way to find a service that involves West Side Yard is to scan the descriptions of every service until you find one.
