So, 5 million tons out each day must mean five million tons in, but that wouldn't account for the weight of goods in transit.

Looks like it is back to the drawing board.


So find an 'average trainsit time' and multiply it against the 5M tons per day figure.

I just watched the longest train I ever remember seeing. It was a mixed freight with two units up front and one in the middle. I wish i had timed it. It was on UP.

I do appreciate the updated camera view, but wish I could see the completesignal in the upper right hand corner as it would add to the enticement of the movement of west bound trains.
