The CSX LCL sub runs through LaGrange. Between sunrise and sunset you could see 8-10 trains if you sat there all day, pretty much an even split between northbound and southbound traffic. Generally weekdays are the best as far as traffic goes but like anything it can be a crapshoot. At the end of the street trackage there is a siding so if you hang around long enough you have a good shot at a meet.
