o_O 4 minutes of 1 train passing with 2 locomotives and 1 helper!!! WOW.
Yesterday in the place I live in Holland, I watched 1 locomotive with only 5 cars, it was gone and out of sight in a few seconds.
And even then the drivers of the cars at the crossing looked annoyed due to the less than 1 minute wait.

That's a true Class One Rail Road there, and that's also a true "main Line". Historical as it has it's roots in the earliest days of railroading here in the US. For SOME reason the traffic seems to be up from prior trips. I've also read and researched a shift in shipping patterns where shipping is now headed to Eastern US ports that in the past were handled in California. I have NO idea how to verify or quantify that.
