Based on most people catching the trains coming into Bessemer anywhere from 4-7pm, I'd say the departure from Greenville is likely anytime 1pm or later. Consistent advice I've seen over the years is check lineside signals. If there is anything other than red, you will have a train coming. Might be a while, but it will show up eventually.
Pretty much what I am seeing/hearing here locally too with exception that they usually run 2/day each way, with an occasional 3rd scrap train to AK and/or stone to Mercer Lime. Also like Mike said, they sometimes light the whole system if there is only one thing moving, so there may be something in the block, or it may be in the universe, lol. Seems that the 2x have been passing each other quite frequently too.
