The Ravensdale coal loads lasted much longer than 6 months. From the time Stampede closed until at least summer of 2002, they reloaded there. I want to say probably 2-3 trains a month ops, it was very low volume. Last train I saw was July or August of 2002. It was usually 3 geeps and 40 cars or so.
