I really canít say how often, I do catch a train or two a week but with work I am not around to catch them every day. I would guess they have been running it 3-4 days a week. Trains go anywhere from 4-5 cars up to 20-25 cars at a time. Returns are about the same. Power for the scrap runs is a crap shoot as well. Single SD38s even a single T motor have been seen this year. A few weeks back I caught a 38 and T motor running elephant style and returning from AK running double long hood forward! That was a nice catch on the BLE. The only common theme in the scrap moves is the fact they run mid day. Other than that, power, length and day the run varies like the weather around here.
