To be of more help I can post the north and south time that the train passes my place (which I used to do when I started doing this). Please post if you would like me to do this so a pattern can be determined. Today was light engines in both directions with the northbound being at 12:35 and southbound at 2:15. Generally the northbound rolls by between noon and 1:00 (I am not always home to see it though) and the southbound anywhere from 1 1/2 to 2 1/4 hours later depending on whether cars need to be pulled to Wellington siding for the runaround to head south. From where I live it would be probably be 20-25+ minutes to cover the distance to and from the yard. This should give an idea when the train actually leaves and arrives back to the yard. As for the barge, it is generally switched on Monday mornings (except on a holiday) after about 8:00. I should get down to get some photos but I work most Mondays. Anyway, hopefully this helps a bit.

Hello Dave,
 
Yeah the times would be great...maybe there is a pattern there.
 
The data on the barge service is appreciated, Mondays after 8 is good to know. Hopefully I'll be able to act on it...
 
Much appreciated,
AP

Yes, I'll start posting the times again. As far as yesterday it was a rare morning run with 1 locomotive. Northbound was about 9:25 returning about 10:45.
