Loaded grain trains and empty grain trains. They also will combine a empty grain and coal/oil train. They tried a couple double coal trains but Pasco can’t spray a double coal train and they were comical disaters. Many of thePasco Northtowns and Minots are running 10,000 feet. For a while they were adding manifest traffic to EB stack and vehicle trains to make 10-12,000ft trains but that seems to have stopped.

In late July, I saw some wb V BLUPTS1 vehicle trains that were 13k at least as far as Whitefish.  Are those still running?  Are they mixed vehicles and manifest?
