We didn't have to wait too long for the hot metal train to show up. This is a rare train to catch due to it doesn't run on any certain schedule. The power is DDMS RSD-15 #1020 The train consisted of L&N 70 ton hoppers 2 hot metal cars and a cab. This is the normal size of the train but at times an extra hot metal car is added due to customer needs.
