How many time a month will you see this train pass through MT.

I used to see a fuselage or so every coupe of days but its not that often when the whole train is these, they are usually mixed in  with stack cars

after the derailment a while back, that destroyed serveral fuselages, BNSF and Boeing made an agreement that they would be transported on dedicated trains.

BNSF has already let that agreement slide. The only times you see J trains of pure Boeing equipment is when the fuslages are behind production scheduling. Then BNSF makes these a hot commodity. Given the winterlike blizzard conditions in the lower midwest these past couple of weeks it is likely these 737 assemblies are late.

I don't recall hearing about an agreement to run fuselages in dedicated trains.  What is in the System Special Instructions is this:

No more than four uncovered assembled airplane fuselages may be transported in a train without approval from Boeing.  Exception: between Interbay and Scopa, WA and between Connell, KS and Newton, KS, a total of six fuselages may be transported without approval from Boeing.
