I had breakfast the other morning at a place in Claremore close to the SLSF/MoP crossing. In the short time that it took me to finish I watched two BNSF and one UP train pass the restaurant.
Once one of the other local railfans told me that the BNSF runs about 24-28 trains a day through Claremore. Does anyone have a sense of the pre-merger Frisco volume through town? I'm sure that Z trains and unit coal have increased the total traffic today. Was Claremore a hot spot before 1980 too?
