After the Terminal's Central Belt was severed between Big Bend Boulevard and Olive Street during 1986-87, the only way for the TRRA to service the customers remaining on the extreme south end of the Central Belt was to route the train via Grand Avenue and over the former Frisco tracks to the BN an Lindenwood and SE Jct.

This train still runs, although with a few changes. The traffic for the few customers on the south end of the Centrol Belt has all but dried up, as presented in the last issue, and most of the time BN road units are used instead of TRRA motors, mostly due to the fact that the newest TRRA locomotives are getting close to their thirtieth birthday.
