Is there a schedule or average time when trains move along the former-ATSF Ward Spur (Midlothian Sub?) There's a lot more traffic between Midlothian and Cleburne than there used to be. I also think the UP uses the spur from Alvarado (old MKT-ATSF interlocker) to Midlothian.

Also wondering about traffic on the UP Waco Sub between Waco and Taylor. There's a few of the MKT signals still left and I"d like to get photo/vid of them working.
