MQT Rail Times

It seems that MQT Z151 usually heads north during the daytime on the weekends. Is this the same as weekdays or is it usually nocturnal during the regular business week?

Educated guess is that any weekend runs are extra, seeing as how they typically have only been running weekdays lately.

So it'll be in general harder to predict.

I used to have a rule of thumb that said it was 2 hours from Turner St SB to Turner St NB. If you listen for them heading down the West Side, and then show up about 90 minutes later, you'll probably catch them in short order, unless they take a delay of some form.

Sounds good. When I caught 151 last Sunday they had nearly 150-200 cars, it took about 20 minutes to clear Ann St.
