Sorry bud, wrong again but thanks for trying. Not a UP trained dispatcher and the schedule had nothing to do with freight trains. In your post you complained about a 9 minute layover for a brake test or lunch break. Your assumption was incorrect, the layover is spent waiting for another SMART train.
