> Subject: "Time Freight"
> I live near the former Virginian line at Ellett, about 30 miles west of Roanoke.
> Despite the decline in coal traffic, this line remains busy with about 8- 10 trains per day, mostly eastbound, of mixed freight, grain, oil or ethanol, and coal.
> Question: While most of the traffic on this line runs at variable times, almost every evening around 11:10 - 11:20 a train goes east. I do not know if it is a coal train or otherwise. Does anyone know if there is train called at Bluefield almost every day that would be here near that time. The timing is too regular to be coincidence.
