    Default Busy BNSF line running through Olathe

    When we were at Old Settlers day last Saturday I saw three trains go through downtown Olathe in 15 minutes. The line runs down to Gardner KS where BNSF has an intermodal yard. Why in world is that line so busy?

    That's part on the BNSF Transcon from Chicago to LA.

    Now you tell me My sister gets held up by it a lot when going home. There will be one train going one way and then another shows up going the other way.

    That's double-track for you. Staples Sub. here is like that, too, and with quad-gates that go down a full minute before the train gets there, it's even worse
