Chris,  
 
Does the ARA run with any regularity? I would assume they're Wednesday and Friday, given that the last I knew the BF-1 showed up on Tuesdays and Thursdays

^Yes. The B&P always comes on Tuesday so on Wednesday, they usually go to NJ.
 
Sometimes they go after the B&P drops cars off for them on Tuesdays. I heard #112 at Arcade Junction one night at 10:30pm!
 
Look what was out in front of the enginehouse on Thursday, October 15!
