Does anyone know if there is more than one train running on "X"., or when they expect to be up and running?

Last we heard, two trains were running and a third is *in process*...

2 trains is the standard operation these days. No more one train, and the 3rd train is on the transfer tracks. The line hasn't been all that ridiculous recently (like 2 hours at most), so I think they'll wait before attempting to run 3 trains. And to run 3 they really would need to perfect the rotations in the station so they don't stack outside the unload station for too long.

Two trains seems to be the norm ever since the beginning of December. Before that, it's been one train (notably with one car from the #3 train along with the rest from #2). I've seen lines anywhere from 2 hours to 20 minutes during December. Given the current operations, a 3rd train would do almost nothing, as it would spend an inordinate amount of time outside the station. With two train operation, it's *extremely* rare that the first train is dispatched before the 2nd is unloaded, rotated, and ready to be moved into the load position.
